Darius Ashley continues to dazzle fans and opposing defenses in the Queen City. The Louisville football signee rushed for 211 yards and two touchdowns Saturday evening in leading Cincinnati St. X to an easy 45-14 win over Cincinnati Elder in the first round of the Division One Ohio state high school playoffs — a convincing victory over a powerful rival.

Ashley has rushed for 1,014 yards and 12 touchdowns in seven games; he missed three games early on because of an ankle injury. He has had back-to-back 200-yard games, after rushing for 205 yards and a TD in last week’s 28-14 win over Cincinnati Moeller in the regular season finale. Cincinnati Enquirer
