Instant Peay Play - APSU Sports - Austin Peay State UniversityClarksville, TN – When Will Healy was hired as the new football coach at Austin Peay State University back in December he said he wanted to win and win sooner than later.

Running around 90-to-100 plays in both scrimmages the Govs playmakers have shown they can handle the quicker paced offensive style, putting up solid numbers – both in the running game, that isn’t a surprise – but also in the passing game that has been as best inconsistent the past several years.

Austin Peay football running backs are averaging 4.8 yards per rush through the first two scrimmages.
