APSU athletics faced several new changes in 2014. Former Athletic Director Derek van der Merwe oversaw a new stadium, created a brand and attempted to add a new mascot.

During the football season, athletics encouraged students to vote for which Governor mascot they preferred.

“Governor Peay has a history of success, there can be no doubt,” the new Gov said to letsgopeay.com. “But it’s just that – history.”

Governor Peay X has been on the sideline cheering on his fellow Governors since 2002.

Since then, Governor Peay X has seen 30 Ohio Valley Conference championships among other accomplishments.

“It’s always easier said than done. My record is impeachable,” Governor Peay X said to letsgopeay.com.

Almost 2,500 votes were cast and Governor Peay X had 64 percent of them, according to The Leaf Chronicle. This resulted in the decision to stick with tradition, keeping Governor Peay X.

However, despite Governor Peay X winning the competition, the new Gov has been making mascot appearances solo. Governor Peay X has not attended any of APSU’s football games this year.

Information regarding the whereabouts of Governor Peay X are still unknown with no response from van der Merwe.
