The structure of a Schur superalgebra S = 5(1 | 1, r) in odd characteristic p is completely determined. The algebra S is semisimple if and only if p does not divide r. If p divides r, then simple S-modules are one-dimensional and the quiver and relations of S can be immediately seen from its regular representation computed in this paper. Surprisingly, if p divides r, then S is neither quasi-hereditary nor cellular nor stratified, as one would expect by analogy with classical Schur algebras or Schur superalgebras in characteristc zero.
