Catching on in AFL

Since Anthony Armstrong's final season at West Texas A&M, things have gone much better for the player and the football team.

Armstrong missed out on the Buffs' resurgence. In the three years since his senior year, a 2-8 campaign, WT has posted a 33-5 record and has won three straight Lone Star Conference titles.
"We had a rough time, but it toughened me up," Armstrong said of his standout career at WT despite losing records.

Tonight, the former Buffs receiver takes the American Airlines Center field in Dallas as a key member of the Desperados, who begin the Arena Football League playoffs against the New York Dragons.

Dallas is the No. 3 seed in the AFL's National Conference, while New York is No. 6.

Armstrong finished the regular season as the team's third-leading receiver with 85 catches for 1,148 yards and 18 touchdowns. Dallas was 12-4, second to the Philadelphia Soul (13-3) in the conference's Eastern Division. The Desperados had the league's second-best record.
