The Ashford Academy Falcons will open their AISA schedule Friday. The Falcons travel to Springwood in the opener.
Ashford Academy is coming off one of the most successful seasons in recent school history. The falcons finished the regular season 7-2 and made it to the playoffs for the first time in eight years.
Head Coach Paul McLean will try to use that momentum this season.
"The guys now that we have, this junior and senior class, they kind of expect to win,” McLean said. “We had a good spring game. We won against a much bigger school. We've done some 7-on-7 stuff this summer and been succesful with that. So, they expect to go out there, they expect to compete now and at least be in the game."
