Ash started playing American Football aged 15 for a youth team in Britain. He was quickly named team captain and awarded offensive MVP (Most Valuable Player).

The following season, playing with those 3 years his senior, Ash scored 20 TDs to top the league in scoring, leading his team to a perfect, unbeaten season, earning a spot at the national finals. Ash went to university where he was a backup QB, spending time learning and developing his game.

Ash played QB for the London Blitz jr, again being the highest scorer, topping the TD table. Losing in the semifinals was tough, but a learning experience for Ash, who joined the Hurricanes the following season.

Impressed with his developing game, and versatile skill set, Ash was signed as WR and back up QB for the Pribram Bobcats in the Czech Republic, starting every game and scoring TDs in them all.

The Algarve Sharks in Portugal moved quickly to grab this great player, naming him captain in the 17/18 season, where Ash led them to be ranked number 1 with a perfect record of 5-0 to start the season. Unfortunately injuries meant his season was cut short with an impressive stat sheet: 74 of 93, 17 TDs and just 2 INTs.

The 2018 season saw Ash returning to the Czech Republic, where he signed for the Hradec Kralove Dragons. A further sign of this player developing his game, was when he was officially invited to Great Britain National Team Training as a WR, preparing for selections to the European Championships in August 18.

The 2019 Season and it was Prague Lions who snapped Ash up, having a hugely successful season, steered by Ash, the team won the league! Over the winter Ash is off to Spain with the Barbera Rookies.
