Ashford’s play helped the Buccaneers reach the state semifinals, where they lost to eventual state champion Thompson.

As a junior, Ashford completed 148-of-269 passes for 2,542 yards and 22 touchdowns against nine interceptions for a nine-win Hoover squad. Ashford received several accolades during his high school career, which included a spot in the 2020 Under Armour All-American Game and the 2020 Polynesian Bowl.

Ashford committed to Ole Miss in June 2019 but decommitted that December after Matt Luke was fired as Rebels head coach.
