Archer City vs. Doubters

The common sports cliche is "us against the world".

Spend one minute at Archer City training camp, it's more than true.

"The expectations outside of our locker room are zero or not," head coach Josh Castles said.

The Wildcats are coming off a disappointing 2-8 season. With a strong senior class in 2011, the team entered the year with high expectations.

"We were expected to do so good," senior quarterback Dawson Reid said. "Everybody is motivated to do a lot better."

Entering 2012, expectations have flipped 180 degrees. Realigned into a district with Windthorst, Seymour and Quanah and with a young team back, Archer City is out of the playoff conversation.

"If you've got any kind of heart or something in your stomach, you've got fire that last year isn't where we want to be, so we're going to do something about it," Castles said.

On the field, the Wildcats will run more in 2012 to take advantage of Reid's strengths. With a young team, perfecting the little things is a big goal in training camp.

And, if the team is going with the sports cliche, the team needs to be one unit when the season starts.

"We're going to have to get stronger, bond as a team if we want to do good in this district," senior Zack Byrd said.
