Frank Ledezma had an incredible senior year to remember. He helped Ashe County win a second straight Mountain Valley Conference Championship, while also earning MVAC Player of the Year and being crowned as Region 9 Player of the Year by the North Carolina Soccer Coaches Association.

Ledezma ended his Husky career with 101 goals scored, most ever by any member of the Ashe County men’s soccer team.

This marked the second straight year that Ashe had the conference’s most outstanding player. Junior Miguel Ramos won the award after last season.

Joining Ledezma on the all-conference and all-region team were fullback Alexis Ramos and striker Cesar Ruiz.

Miguel Ramos and senior Jamie Weaver were also named to the MVAC All-Conference list. Victor Melo and senior Bryam Reyes were named to the honorable mention list.
