Cornell Big Red Head football coach David Archer returned home Friday night to help raise funds for the Samaritan Counseling Center at its annual benefit dinner.  The dinner featured Archer as the keynote speaker and was held at Our Lady of Good Counsel Church in Endicott.  He grew up attending Our Lady of Good Counsel and served as an altar boy and eucharistic minister there.

Archer was a star athlete at Union-Endicott High School and was named a First-Team All-State All-Star in football his senior season.  From U-E Archer went on to captain Cornell’s football team in his senior campaign.  He graduated from Cornell with a degree in economics in 2005.

He returned to the Big Red football program several years after graduation to serve as an assistant coach.  Then in January 2013 Archer was named to take over as the new Cornell Head Football Coach.  He became the youngest Division I head football coach in the nation at 30 years and two months.

He spoke on developing a winning football program and finding ways to draw comparisons to the game of football and life.  Close to 100 people attended the event.  Various raffles and door prizes help raise funds as well.
