Open Letter from APSU Football Head Coach Will Healy

 

APSU FootballClarksville, TN – I have been hurting the past 36 hours. You probably have been, too. Sunday morning was as difficult of a moment as I could ever imagine. At 8-1 against FCS competition, we felt deserving of a playoff bid.

We looked at what we’d done and felt like we belonged among the best 24 teams in America.  Our name wasn’t called, though. We didn’t get in. It hurt. It still hurts so bad. My heart shattered for 14 seniors who have gone through so much.

Written by Will Healy
APSU Head Football Coach

APSU FootballClarksville, TN – Govs Fans,

Without question, Saturday was the most rewarding experience of my coaching career. I am ecstatic that I could share the moment with all of you in front of a record crowd at Fortera Stadium.

From the letterman’s brunch, where we celebrated the return of the 1977 Ohio Valley Conference champions, to the excitement of the Gov Walk, to the relentless effort of our football team for four quarters, to the long-awaited toppling of those goal posts, it was about as perfect of a day as I could have imagined for our first victory at Austin Peay.
