    Ashland will be much improved in 2017, but with Johnson Central in their District and Region it really puts a cap on their season.

    Braxton Ratliff returns as one of the premier, dual threat QBs in EKY. He'll give the Tomcats a chance to win almost every time he straps on his helmet. The Johnson Central game, however, might be the one exception. It's hard to make plays against a JC defense when you're running for your life every snap.

    The key to Ashland's success probably lies in the trenches. If they don't improve on the lines, they're likely looking at similar season as last year.

    Aroq Colburn is the team's leading returning receiver and second leading returning rusher behind Ratliff. He should factor heavily into Ashland's success.

    Issac Caines, Blake Hester, and Bryce Carley are some potential breakout names to look for.

    I expect Ashland to be good. But, as ATLCat said, #2 in their district and region is probably the ceiling for this team.

    I heard that Ashland's backup QB Adkins has enrolled at Spring Valley? Can anyone confirm that?

    If true, I can't say that I'm surprised. He's a big kid with a big arm. Too much upside to be a backup his entire highschool career.

    I agree, but I just hate to see it.
