Coach Dave Gray's "Air Ashland" re-wrote the A's aerial records. First-team All-Ohio Bill Seder (74 receptions, 1166 yds, 8 TDs) and third-team All-Ohio Todd Wait (153 of 308 passes for 1987 yds and 13 TDs) became the most prolific passing combination in the school's history. Even Tim Schultz surpassed the old receiving mark with 40 catches. Although the Run and Shoot produced the most points since 1972, the defense gave up 304 points, the most in AHS history. At the banquet John Bookmyer and Toby White were the top linemen, while Ken Shakley won the Helmet award and Bill Seder the MVP.
