His favorite class is English with Mrs. Rogers. “I find it easier to do English, and she’s [Mrs. Rogers] is nice too…I like reading. I am more of a reading than math and numbers type of guy.”

Ashton has a couple of favorites. His favorite music is rap, especially from rapper Rod Wave. His favorite meal is the chicken spaghetti that his grandma and mom make.
Ashton is relatively new to the Ozark area, having lived in Stuttgart and Lepanto. He attended Oark School for his 10th-grade year before transferring to OHS for his junior year.

If he could meet anyone in the world, he would meet Kobe Bryant. “He’s a good basketball player, but off of the court, he’s more than just a player. He’s smart…” While on the subject of Kobe, Ashton said that he would never get in a helicopter or an airplane.

He said that his mom has influenced his life the most “because it’s just me and my brother and her, so she’s always there trying her hardest to support us and be there for us.”

Ashton’s dream job is designing shoes and clothing for a company as big as Nike or Nike’s Air Jordan line. He thinks that more schooling and thinking through how to have a unique brand and designs are essential to fulfilling this dream. The money he would make from such a venture would not hurt his feelings at all.

In Ashton’s free time, he enjoys online shopping and creating content for TikTok. He boasts almost 27,000 followers and almost three million likes.
