Anaheim Archers Press Releases

  • Fireside with Anaheim General Manager +

    ANAHEIM, CA - Following the defeat of the Archers at the hands of the stacked St. Louis Sun Kings, the front office of the Archers has been quiet. Some speculate they were licking their wounds or simply resting after a long run last year caught up with their long run this year. Archers general manager Eric Stelle broke the silence to talk frankly about his team's performance and give the fans a look toward the future as he sat down with OSPN commentators for a quick fire Q&A session. OSPN: We'll start wtih center Stelle: An evolving position. In days past, it was all about the roadblock. As you know, here in Anaheim, we are a bit less traditional in our Read More
  • Midseason Madness +

    ANAHEIM, CA - Reports of turmoil at this year's all star festivities in Anaheim have been lightning up the news wire. Stories of St. Louis' Timothy Adler's temper tantrum due to lack of all star minutes inundated the Archers' press team with requests for comments. Did coach Bennett, who was at the helm of a seventeen point loss 129-112 to the West Stars, hurt their chances by not playing Adler? Did he and Adler exchange words during practice leading up to the game? What about Lynwood Emmert's outburst and was it related somehow to Adler? When asked about the game, coach Bennett said, "I played as many as I could but this wasn't an 'everybody gets a trophy' game. I put Read More
  • Ticker Tape Gives Way +

    ANAHEIM, CA - It's been four months since the Archers sealed the deal and secured the second cup in franchise history; yet, before the ribbon from their homecoming parade had been cleaned up, many were already back on the grind. "As you get older, you can't celebrate too hard 'cause you gotta take care of yourself," said veteran point guard Karl Holley, "and taking care of yourself is an all the time thing." Holley, who saw his minutes slashed this season has become more of a mentor to the stable of young point guards that have come into Anaheim of late. All star James Wall and up and coming Tony Bowe both have blossomed under the tutelage of the Archer's staff Read More

  • Lock it Up +

    ANAHEIM, CA - As the season winds down, the Archers look to tighten everything up for a playoff run and reflect on the season that has passed. Having already locked up the third seed in the American Conference, veterans have seen diminished minutes as coach Bennett in an effort to gain a last minute rest before a grueling playoff grind. It's not as if the Archers are ancient by any stretch but they start three players over 30 years old in the front court. "This is my eleventh year in the leauge and there's a certian physical price that gets paid with every game," said Logan Goloby, "fortunately, this season, it's not all on me so that helps reduce the wear Read More
  • Light the Fires +

    ANAHEIM, CA - The city of Los Angeles is presently a city divided. On the streets and in the malls, Archer fans and Chaos fans have been proudly representing the teams which share the city. Traditionally, the Chaos have been "that other team" in LA but, this season, general manager Wetzel has them at 30 wins by the all star break and on pace to have a real shot at a 50 win season. That "rarified air" usually reserved for the OBWL elite now sees new faces like the Blackjacks, SunKings, Sharks, and Highlanders in the mix... and the Chaos. That "one-upmanship" between the Archers and the Chaos revealed a new wrinkle with the announcement of the All Star lineups. Renato Read More
  • Building a Wall +

    ANAHEIM, CA - Five months ago, the Archers, by way of San Diego, drafted a young, exciting point guard John Wall at pick number five. Wall was a gifted athlete with one eye glued on the rim at all times but many had doubts about how his ability would translate to the next level. Lacking the court vision of traditional point guards, at 6'1" tall, Wall was considered by many to be too small for the shooting guard position. "There was no way we could pass on him. We were tempted by others but could not shake the memory of another exciting young PG we drafted in the ABL the year prior to merger. That player was the multiple time all Read More
  • Archers say goodbye to an Unsung Hero +

    ANAHEIM, CA - Ambrose Brown, long time scout for the Anaheim Archers, announced his intention to retire at the end of the regular season. GM Eric Stelle presented Brown with a set of TaylorMade golf clubs and a lifetime membership to the prestigious Riviera Country Club in Santa Monica as he and Brown faced the press. "An organization is only as good as those directing it and the Archers have had the privilege of having some of the greats on staff. From the fantastic years and the championship earned under Coach Kolby Kurzyna to what I hope will be many more successful seasons under Irwin Bennett. Today, another one of the greats, Ambrose Brown, has decided to retire." Brown, who just Read More
  • Archers Enter Playoffs in "Unique" Position +

    ST LOUIS, MO - Like clockwork the machine in Anaheim has cranked out yet another fifty win season but as the regular season closes and eyes turn to the playoffs, the Archers find themselves in a position they've never been in before... the visitor. For the first time since the OBWL was founded, the Archers face the prospect of being the underdog in the playoffs. "In the entire history of our organization, the Archers have never been anything less than a home court seed in the playoffs," said general manager Eric Stelle, "that is less an indictment of the Archers' success and more of the increased competition we see within the league. To win 50 games and not see home court Read More
  • Lions Youth and Atheticism on Display in Ottowa +

    PARIS, FRANCE - While the OBWL took a pause to celebrate all things basketball, a similar, less heralded celebration was being held in Ottowa home of the reigning OBDL champs the Ottowa Omnipotence. The Omnipotence, affiliate to a struggling New Jersey franchise, steamrolled over the Lions last season in an impressive sweep behind the inspired play of Zachary Stubbs' MVP performance (23.1 points on 51.3% shooting). Yet, half a season later, the winds of fate are fickle in the development league and what was once talked about as a younger Logan Goloboy, wilted in the furnace of the OBWL. That's life in the development though players are called up, sent down, and abandoned to their fate each season. The Lions de Read More
