His expectation was that the younger kids were going to work hard and he set a great example. He’ll do a great job at Ashland. Th ey have a great program and win every year. Th ey have some great coaches. Th ey’re getting a young man that works very, very hard and has high character and a great work ethic in the classroom, weight room and on the practice fi eld. Th ey’re very fortunate. “Favorite memories were the wins he was a part of and he is a kid that is always happy for everybody else. He knew what his role was and seeing him in the locker room after games being excited was always a joy. He is a very fortunate young man and he knows that.

Th at’s all because of his parents.” Wesley Woodie, who will be playing off ensive guard at Ashland said, “I’ve been in the Coshocton program since I was six years old. I’m looking forward to the con- nections I’m going to make. I think it’s going to be great and I’m looking forward to where it takes me for the rest of my life. I’m leaning toward a business degree but in my mind I think I’m going to try and become a college football coach after I’m done playing. “Th e amount of support I’ve received during this whole process is unreal. I want to thank everyone - es- pecially my parents for driving me everywhere - I went to 15 football camps over the summer trying to get a scholarship somewhere. I’m grateful for that.
