2018 High School Football Preview: Ashland Grizzlies

The Grizzlies hope to get back to relevance in year two of Beau Lehnerz.

ASHLAND—The Grizzlies stumbled to a 1-6 showing in the Midwestern League last year, but in year two of Beau Lehnerz, there’s reason to think they have room to grow.

The players have noticed a difference and say they’ve fed off a more commanding presence from their head coach.

“He was always the friend coach and this year he's having to become the head coach and has to be more of a leader and take charge and discipline when he needs to," senior lineman Myles Montgomery said.

Montgomery is undoubtedly Ashland’s heart and soul on the field, and is looking like one of the most valuable players in southern Oregon.

An offseason in the weight room was on full display when he ripped off 26 reps of 185 pounds at the Dave Kitchell games.

For as talented as he is, Lehnerz is asking for him not to try and do too much.

"Nobody's worked harder than him in the weight room and he's been almost a four-year starter,” he said. “He played as a freshman in our championship year. He's a cog in our system so he doesn't need to do more than his job. If he dominates at his position both offensively and defensively we'll be better for it. But if we start doing other people's jobs, we're going to struggle. It's a system and everybody needs to do their part but you have a guy like that, it makes things run a little bit better."
