Ashland High Athletic Director, Karl Kemper says there are several reasons for the decision.
The team doesn’t have as many players as it usually does, there isn’t a lot of prep time to ramp up for the season, and there could be a competitive disadvantage against larger, 6A schools locally.
JV will play 4A teams, that have about the same number of players, 25.
Kemper says some students are transferring schools to play football, including his own son.
