Austin Peay vs. Eastern Illinois

September 29th, 2012 • 1:30pm
Charleston, IL • O’Brien Field (10,000)
Austin Peay State University GovernorsCharleston, IL – After the past 25 years with legendary Bob Spoo leading the program, a new face is in charge of the Eastern Illinois program that will face Austin Peay, 1:30pm, Saturday. Not only is Dino Babers the new coach but he also has brought along a different offensive style.

Historically, Eastern Illinois has had superb quarterbacks, like former Walter Payton Award recipient and current Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo. But Babers brought an offense with him from Baylor that is reminiscent of the one run by 2011 Heisman Trophy recipient Robert Griffin III.

APSU Sports: Austin Peay Football

Austin Peay State University GovernorsClarksville, TN – On the surface it seems Devin Stark’s abilities at wide receiver are more appreciated on the national and regional levels than they are within his own conference.

Stark recently was named preseason second-team All-American by the FCS Senior Bowl. Earlier this summer, Stark was named to the College Football Performance Watch List at wide receiver as well. However, Stark’s name was not on either the 2011 All-Ohio Valley Conference team or the league’s 2012 preseason team.

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.

“At one point in that game, I remember looking at (wide receiver) Coach (Marcus) Gildersleeve and saying ‘he really doesn’t know what he is doing out, does he?’ It was unfair we had to put him in that situation, but we had injury and other issues and we were forced to play him. He has come so far since then.”
