Final Comments:
Team Strengths
Athleticism , Excellent work ethic, Good length, good basketball knowledge,players that can play multiple positions, motivated basketball players, Have experienced success in multiple sports

Team Weaknesses
Experience! Depth at certain positions. Need to develop cohesion on the floor. Late start due to football success

Coach’s Comments Season Outlook: The incredible success of our football program has put us behind a little bit to start the season, but the excitement that it brings adds to our excitement for this season. We need to learn about our team and our roles early and continue to develop to fill those holes brought on by graduation and players lost to injury, but we feel we have some quality guys that will be in the mix to fill those spots. We are excited to play a highly competitive schedule, and hopefully be able to play in front of our great Archer fans. Our guys know that each season brings on new challenges, but we think that they are ready to tackle those new challenges and see what this team can accomplish.

Wow, d4 with 5 assistant coaches, I'm guessing that's more than average or possibly the "new norm" in high school basketball's quest for consistent, high performance competitive play.
