Johnson Central 50 Ashland 14FinalAdvertisement
Nov 16, 18, 10:06 PM #2Somebody from Ashland should call up someone from Boyle County, Lexington Catholic, or whichever 3A team it was that petitioned to play up and allow Ashland to drop down and get away from JC and thank them. Maybe even drive there and give them a hug. Definitely send them a thank you card and a nice fruit basket. Outside of Ironton from the late 70's through the late 00's, no one has consistently put it on the Tomcats like Johnson Central.
It should be noted that this was the final game for Braxton Ratliff in an Ashland uniform. I'm not the foremost authority on Ashland football, but I think he put together one of the great careers ever for a Tomcat QB. I won't miss him though.

Nov 17, 18, 09:42 AM #5The Daily Independent credits Johnson Central with 578 rushing yards. Joe Jackson had a huge night with 332 yards and 5 touchdowns. Devin Johnson complimented Jackson with 192 yards and a touchdown of his own. Their offensive line and blocking backs get such a great push at the point of attack, and their ball carriers hit the whole with authority. It's hard to get them off the field.
Ashland has a very good team. Lots of speed, a great QB, very disciplined and well coached. JC is just simply too good at what they do, and Ashland hasn't been able match up unless the Golden Eagles help them out by putting the ball on the ground a lot.
