KENT, Ohio (AP) - Kent State has launched a comic strip to promote super-speedy running back Dri Archer as a Heisman Trophy candidate.

The unique campaign features ``The Archer,'' a cartoon drawn by school alum Chuck Ayers, who has illustrated the ``Funky Winkerbean'' and ``Crankshaft'' comic strips. The weekly strip made its debut on Wednesday and documents Archer's arrival at Kent State. The 5-foot-8, 175-pound Archer rushed for 1,429 yards, scored 16 touchdowns and averaged 9 yards per carry last season for the Golden Flashes. He was one of the nation's leaders in all-purpose yardage.

Along with the comic strip, the school has constructed a ``Dri4Heisman'' website, Twitter account and Facebook page.

Ayers, a 1971 Kent State graduate, said combining Archer's amazing talents with ``the efforts of an old alumnus is pretty cool.''
