CN's Shoaf, Ash receive all-state honors in football
December 4, 2012Columbus North High School
Columbus North seniors Thomas Shoaf and Shaquille Ash have been recognized as all-state players in football.
Shoaf, a 6-6, 255-pound offensive tackle, was chosen to the Top 50 All-State Team by the Indiana Football Coaches Association, the highest honor available in the coaches' all-state program. Shoaf, who has committed to attend Brigham Young University, was the top lineman for an offense that totaled 298.3 yards per game for the 6-6 Bull Dogs.
In a separate selection, Shoaf also was chosen Class 5A first-team all-state by The Associated Press.
Ash, a 5-10, 200-pound linebacker was selected Class 5A Senior All-State by the IFCA after setting a pair of Columbus North single-season defensive records.
Ash set an all-time school best with 112 solo tackles and established another season mark with 170 defensive points. The solo tackles number eclipsed the previous mark of 105 solos by Jared Brock in 1989, while the defensive points edged the earlier standard of 169 set by Stephen Whited in 2005.
Included in Ash's tackle total were seven tackles for loss and two sacks. He also contributed two interceptions, two forced fumbles, six passes broken up and one quarterback pressure.
The list of all-state honorees from the IFCA and the AP follows.
