APSU Sports: Men’s Football

Austin Peay State University GovernorsClarksville, TN – When J.P. Washington stepped off the scale, his face was filled with disappointment.

342 pounds.  A little more than a week ago, Washington left campus for his Nashville home weighing right near the 330 mark. In addition, he weighted in for physical just after returning from a large dinner at the cafeteria.

Quickly, Washington recovered from his disappointment. He knows it is just a small pothole in a road that saw him work diligently all spring and summer long to get his weight under control. If nothing else, it was a reminder to him to stay focused both on and off the field in preparation for the 2011 season.
