(Lewes, DE.)- Former Cape Vikings Football Player Ben Ashby is a student-athlete who means business in the classroom posting a G-P-A of 3.90.
His favorite class is with accounting teacher Sharon Elzey who has taught him since freshman year.
"The responsibility that he takes on for himself and he wants to make sure that he gets things done and on time and he stays focused and gets the job done, "said Ashby.
The senior said he has been focusing more on his studies and preparing for the S-A-T since suffering an ACL injury during the football season.
"And that is what I did but it is tough balancing everything and that is one challenge I am looking forward to at Salisbury," said Ashby.
In the fall Ashby will be attending Salisbury University and will be playing football for Head Coach Sherman Woods. Ashby said that Salisbury University was the right fit for him.
"The first time I went there I liked it a lot and with all the people it felt like a big campus and it is a big football school," said Ashby.
Former Vikings Coach Bill Collick coached Ashby for years and said he is a special guy and wishes more players were like him.
