State Champions! AHS beat the defending State champs Massillon on Brownie Spreng's two field goals. After beating the top contender Barberton and undefeated Norwalk Coach Moore advertised in the Cleveland paper that AHS would take on all comers. No one took the challenge. Consequently Ashland proclaimed their State Championship. The OHSAA recognizes Fostoria (8-1) as the state champs.

The brilliant four-year careers of Warren Spreng, Paul Ganyard, and Martin Moore ended one of the greatest all-round backfields in AHS football history. Percy McDowell was excellent on defense. Mart Moore was a three-time Captain. Paul Ganyard was the punter and a great broken field runner, who scored 8 TDs. Warren Spreng was a dangerous kicker inside the 40-yardline. Brownie was the leading scorer: 9 TDs, 4 FGs, 11 Xpts for 68 points. On the line Howard Winbigler and Harry Pifer were outstanding three-year starters. The team averaged 145 pounds per man. Also, it was the first year for Black jerseys with Orange stripes on the arms. After defeating the Massillon "Tigers" with the same colors AHS adopted the colors as their "charmed" standard.
