No Moral Victories for Archer City

Archer City senior quarterback Ty Tucker says it all: "No moral victories. We just want that W."

For the Wildcats, the time for learning is over. The time for winning is now.

"Last year, our goal was competing, and that's what we did," Tucker said. "We didn't really know how to win, and we couldn't really finish games."

Heading into their second season under Head Coach Don Hasley, the Wildcats are light-years ahead of where they were at this time last season.

"I really don't think you can even quantify it," Hasley said. "Because all the kids have been through two springs of it and one full season."

Tucker agrees: "We didn't really have a 'first day.' It was pretty much like we just jumped into the fourth week of practice."

One thing that has the Wildcats so confident heading into the season is a tough, strong defense anchored by a dominant defensive line.
"We feel like our defense will be fast and furious," Coach Hasley said. "Our defense is going to start up front with Reagan Bates and Kolton Hasley. We feel like we've got two beasts. 'Thor and Hulk,' whatever you want to call them, you know they're there!"

Kolton Hasley is Coach Hasley's son, a senior lineman. 

"Reagan on the right side, is a really fast guy," the younger Hasley said. "Me on the left, I'm a really strong guy. I'm about 270, I can throw most people out of the way."

Last year, five of Archer City's eight losses came by single digits. So despite their record, the Wildcats were no fun to play against.

Kolton Hasley said it all: "There wasn't a team last year that would have said, 'Oh, we would have wanted to go with them, again.'"

His father said the team likes its chances this year. "We feel like if we take care of our business, and we learn what our game is, then we're going to be just fine."

The Wildcats will open their season on the road at Petrolia August 29th.
