"He has to play line at PRC because he is one of the bigger players on the team," said his father, George Lancaster. "Ashton also won the strongest player award for the team back in the spring."
At 6'1" 240, Lancaster had to help out on both the offensive and defensive lines. He is currently sitting out with an injury. His doctor advised against surgery and he is out for 4-6 weeks.
Lancaster will be transferring to St. Amant in Louisiana after the first nine week period of school. He will have to sit out the year, but he will be able to play his senior year at St. Amant.
St. Amant plays in a tough 5A district with teams like East. St. John, Hahnville, Destrehan, and Dutchtown. In his second year, Coach David Oliver has St. Amant on the right track. 6'4" 280 pound defensive tackle Marvin Martin is one of the top prospects in the 2010 class coming out of a district that produces several Division One players every year.
Lancaster hopes to play linebacker at his new school. He has the build of a middle linebacker and St. Amant has enough size that Ashton won't be automatically pinned as a lineman.
Ashton's father is a Monroe, LA native and he graduated from Louisiana Tech. Both George and Ashton made the trip up to Ruston to attend the Louisiana Tech vs. Nicholls State game. Ashton is certainly a prospect to keep your eyes on for the 2011 class.
