Before moving to Detroit in May 2013, Ashley covered Kansas State football and men’s basketball for three years as a correspondent for the Associated Press. Before working for the AP, she wrote for the Kansas State Collegian, where she also spent time as a copy editor and sports editor. Overall, she compiled hundreds of sports stories on her way to graduating. She minored in Spanish and economics along with majoring in journalism, but writing has always been her passion.
At age 13, she emailed her dad a recap of a Kansas City Chiefs game, and he responded that she should think about becoming a sports writer. Almost a decade later, she is living the dream, and she could not be more thrilled to be doing so in a great sports town like Detroit.

Against Nelson, the most the Lions can do is try to slow him down and prevent any game-wrecking plays, coordinator Teryl Austin said.
Jim Caldwell does not buy the narrative that Matthew Stafford has been forcing the ball to superstar wide receiver Calvin Johnson.
Brady Hoke disagreed with the notion the Wolverines struggled in the first half, but he did not seem surprised by the fan reaction.
