It was Ashland's last year in the North Central Ohio League. When the AHS adopted the T-formation, they opened with five victories including a record setting 71 points and 489 yards against Bucyrus. Injuries to Frank Glasser and Jim Tharp ended the A's race against co-champs Marion and Galion. Western Wiles and Merle McKinley were all-league first-teamers. Bob Miller's 35-yard TD pass to Jim Zimmerman in the last 8 seconds of the season was a thrilling conclusion to Coach Buckner's final year.
