Coaches Barnhart and Wise expanded their squad to 37 players, but only two 3-year starters returned: HB Charles Newsome and center Fred Newcomb. The A's finished 5th in the NCO ahead of Delaware in their only league win. Nevertheless the rivalry game at Mansfield again drew over 5,000 fans to see if the Orange and Black could repeat "22. Newsome, Ashland's first African-American player and future Mansfield dentist, was first-team All-NCO again.
