Football: Middleton, Ashwood part ways

After three seasons, Alonzo Ashwood’s time as Middleton’s head football coach has ended.
“We met with coach Ashwood on last Friday, and basically, we mutually agreed a new direction for the football team was the best option,” said Middleton athletic director Ronald Thomas.
Middleton finished 2-8 this season and has gone 4-26 under Ashwood.
“We wish coach Ashwood the best going forward,” Thomas said.
Thomas said Ashwood is a teacher at Middleton, but would not discuss personnel. Thomas also did not say if the school administration had a timetable for hiring a new head football coach.
“At the end of the day, no matter who you’re dealing with, at any level, its about wins and losses,” Ashwood said.
Ashwood said he wants to continue coaching in Hillsborough County. He said he will continue to help his seniors earn college scholarships.
“I’m going to see them through with this recruiting process,” he said.
Ashwood said the team’s collective grade point average improved significantly during his three years.
“I may have lost the battle on football field, but I didn’t lose the battle in the classroom,” he said.
