CLARKSVILLE, Tenn. - Senior quarterback Jake Ryan, of the Austin Peay State University football team, has been named the Copies in a Flash APSU Athlete of the Week.

Ryan took OVC Co-Offensive Player of the Week honors for his Senior Day performance against Tennessee Tech. He was 27-for-38 for 310 yards and four touchdowns in the Govs 38-31 victory over the Golden Eagles in Ryan's Austin Peay swan song.

His four touchdown tosses were the most by a Govs quarterback since Oct. 25, 2008 (Trent Caffee). Over the course of his final four quarters as Austin Peay's quarterback, Ryan moved into second place all-time in career completions (497) and became the third Gov to finish his career with more than 5,000 yards passing.

The Copies in a Flash APSU Athlete of the Week is selected by the APSU Sports Information staff each Tuesday during the academic year. Copies in a Flash, of Clarksville, sponsors the award.

  • Senior forward Leslie Martinez, of the women's basketball team, averaged 17 points in two games last week, including a season-high 20 in Austin Peay's first 2012 victory, a 71-67 win against Binghamton, Sunday.
