Archer City is coming off of a 12-1 season, a trip to the Quarterfinals and are on a 3 year winning streak but they are only returning 8 lettermen and 6 total starters this season. The good news is that out of that eight, two of them were District 9-1A's MVP's. QB Patrick Dayton (Offensive MVP) and LB Cooper Twyford (District Defensive) will need repeat performances in order for the Wildcats to get the Quarterfinals again. The bad news is that their district is very tough and they may not even make the playoffs. Windthorst, Seymour and Munday will provide stiff competition.
