The Governors Club has named four new members to the Red Coat Society, a hall of fame for service to APSU athletics.

Don Corlew, Bobby Mills, Davis McCutchen and Edmund Terrell—all members of the Govs Club executive board—will be honored Jan. 8 during APSU's Ohio Valley Conference doubleheader. At the following reception, each will receive a red coat and a lapel pin.

Corlew, who's seen every APSU home football game since 1959 and almost every home basketball game since 1958, has been Governors Club member since the organization's inception in the late-60s. He received the APSU Alumni Association's 2000 Outstanding Service Award.

Mills has been a member of the Govs Club for nearly 40 years. A football and basketball season-ticket holder since 1965, he's also owned baseball season tickets since the first days they were sold. He is a leader in the Governors Club membership drive and other fundraisers.

McCutchen, who joined the Govs Club in the mid-1960s, initiated the idea to reward APSU's student-athletes with replicas pin after Austin Peay earned the OVC Academic Banner in 2002-03. He has devoted many hours to the Governors Bass tournament, basketball fundraiser, summer concert series and the Governors Golf Classic.

Terrell, a Govs Club member since the late 1970s, served as president from 1997-98. He's a leader in the Govs Club membership drive and obtaining entrants to the annual Governors Golf Classic and Governors Bass tournaments. In addition, he owns season tickets to all APSU ticket-selling sports.

To be eligible for the Red Coat Society, individuals must have been a member in good standing of the Governors Club for at least five years, supported APSU athletic programs through financial contributions or fundraisers, supported more than one sport both at home and away and been recognized for their association with Austin Peay athletics.
