High School FootballEdit
Ashton played at Mission Viejo High School.
Ashton played college football at the University of Southern California where he graduated in 2006. He was a walk-on player who earned a scholarship. A feel good story as a fifth generation USC Scion (meaning his relatives were alumni), he had been to every USC Trojans game since birth.
Since Ashton was not drafted in the 2006 NFL Draft he was a free agent pick up by the National Football League San Diego Chargers in May 2006 and released by the San Diego Chargers in June 2006. Ashton then unsuccessfully tried out for the Baltimore Ravens. In 2007, he played as middle linebacker for the Flash de la Courneuve in Paris (France) where he won the national title.
