  • The Ashland High football team's best season in 15 years did not go unnoticed by Oregon's Class 5A coaches as nine Grizzlies were voted first- or second-team all-state.
    In a vote that was released Tuesday, Ashland had three first-team all state selections and six second-team picks. The Grizzlies' first-team picks were senior quarterback Danial White, their lone first-team pick on offense, junior defensive back Max Montgomery and sophomore punter Walker Shibley-Styer. Ashland's second-team picks were, on offense: sophomore defensive back Shashi Penn, junior tight end Parker Layton and senior kicker Matt Hedges; and on defense, senior defensive lineman Cody Frost-Eisenberg, senior defensive lineman Tyree Heesacker and senior linebacker Mason Montgomery, the two-time Midwestern Conference defensive player of the year.
    "That's certainly a tribute to the fact that we went as far as we did in the state playoffs," said Ashland head coach Charlie Hall, whose team fell to Sherwood in the 5A state semifinals.
    The top-ranked Bowmen were stunned the following week in overtime by West Albany, which consequently captured all the major individual awards: coach of the year (Randy Nyquist), offensive player of the year (senior running back Jake LaCoste) and defensive player of the year (senior linebacker Gabe Stone).
