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.

At the NFL owners meetings this week, someone made a comment to Lions head coach Jim Caldwell about his quarterback Matthew Stafford.
The Lions have no interest in former Ravens running back Ray Rice, head coach Jim Caldwell said Wednesday at the NFL owners meetings.
“All teams pretty much said the same thing,” McKay said Wednesday at the owners meetings. “It’s time to make this play a football play.”
“His offseason to this point has been pretty impressive,” Caldwell said Wednesday.
“It’s not going to look any different than it did last year,” Caldwell said Wednesday at the owners meetings.
“We haven’t come up with the right solution yet,” Lewand said, “but the issue isn’t going to go away.”
“Any idea that this is anywhere near the finish line is misplaced,” Lewand said Tuesday in a sit-down with Detroit reporters.
Lewand seemed to downplay the possibility of a dramatic departure from the normal uniforms; no change in color or logo is expected.
“We were comfortable making him a proposal that would have made him the highest-paid defensive player in the league …” Lewand said.
With Levy, the Lions could negotiate into the season if need be, though talks about an extension have not even started yet.
