 2016 Preview 


       Ashford finished the 2015 season with a disappointing 3-7 record. Last year Ashford finished seventh in Class 4A region two with a 2-5 region record and failed to qualify for the playoffs.

       The Yellow Jackets lost as many games as in any season since 2000. The Yellow Jackets last playoff victory came during the 2002 season. They would love to break through this year with a post season win.

       Since 2010, Ashford has gone a combined 34-29. Their 54.0% winning percentage ranks 27th in Class 4A over the past six seasons.

       Over the past 25 seasons, Ashford has managed to compile a record of 141-122. Their 54.0% winning percentage ranks 19th in Class 4A and 145th in the AHSAA.

       The Yellow Jackets are led by head coach Mitch Sellers who is entering his fifth season at the helm. He has compiled a record of 20-22 over the past four seasons at Ashford. Under his direction the Yellow Jackets have qualified for the playoffs a total of two times. They have not won a region crown with Coach Sellers.

       Coach Sellers' overall record as a head football coach in four season stands at 20-22 (47.6%).

       The Ashford Yellow Jackets will play in Class 4A region two during the 2016 season.

       Overall, the region is among the weakest in the state. Qualifying for one of the playoffs spots could be a little easier. It will be an uphill battle for the Yellow Jackets if they hope to grab one of the four playoff slots in region two this season.

       The Yellow Jackets open the 2016 season on the road against non-region opponent Rehobeth on Friday, August 19 at W.F. Andrews Field. Last year the Rehobeth Rebels finished with an overall record of 4-6 and in fifth place in Class 5A region two.

       Ashford and Rehobeth have met a total of 74 times on the football field. The Yellow Jackets have a 43-29-2 record against the Rebels. They last met in 2015 with Rehobeth winning by a score of 20-13.

       Ashford returns 4A All-State Senior athlete Stevonte Tullis. He was named to the second team last season.
