Coach Speak: Archer's Dyer and Fleetwood of Peachtree Ridge

GPB Sports fills screens across the state tonight with the 2014 premiere of Football Fridays in Georgia! This Labor Day edition features the Archer Tigers taking on the Peachtree Ridge Lions in their Suwanee den.

A young Archer program kicked off under the leadership of head coach Andy Dyer six years ago and follows his lead to this day. He calls this year's squad "Team Six" as a reminder that 2013's record-setting 11-1 season is locked up in the books and the focus has shifted to the present. He must be doing something right given that success on the field and the adoration his players have for him.

On the other sideline tonight will be Peachtree Ridge, competing for the first time this season. The Lions are led by head coach Mark Fleetwood and highly-touted starting quarterback, Chance Thrasher. Thrasher will take the field in his third season as starter and Coach Fleetwood feels confident in the strides he's made in all respects on the field, including the way he's gotten his body into solid condition.

Lots to see tonight....far too much to miss. So join us on GPB for our dog-days-of-summer Labor Day special!
