Since 2002, the Ashland Arrows have been a tough out and contenders for the OCC and the playoffs. Over the last three seasons, the Arrows have gone with a senior at quarterback Zach Bernhard, Tyson Vogel and Nick Zurcher running Ashland's spread offense. Right now the next man up is a sophomore Grant Denbow. He'll be the first underclassman to start at QB for the Arrows since Marcus Fuller in 2008.

Scott Valentine who begins his 13th season as Arrows head coach says Denbow ran the same type of offense as a freshman and has had a good summer competing in passing drills. Valentine is also counting on senior 6'3" 260lb Drew Dickinson who plays acroos the offensive and defensive lines. Ashland finished at 7-3 a season ago, missing the playoffs by one win. For the Arrows to get back to the post season Valentine says they must get their season off to a fast start, but that won't be easy with the likes of Wadsworth, Dover and Tiffin Columbian being their first three opponents. Prior to that, Ashland will scrimmage North Canton Hoover at home on August 13th, then preview at Brunswick on August 22nd at 6pm.
