Stark reality is Govs have little experience beyond veteran pair of wide receivers

 

APSU Sports: Men’s Football

Austin Peay State University GovernorsClarksville, TN – When Devin Stark stepped onto the football field for his first college game at Illinois State in Week 3 of 2009, he had little more than a week of practice after an NCAA Clearinghouse issue finally was cleared up.

He has come so far since then.”
