Syracuse, NY - Ashton Broyld can see some big things in his future with the Syracuse University offense. The Rochester native who set school records for running and passing at Rush-Henrietta High School can envision himself as the kind of dual-threat quarterback Orange coaches are seeking.
But for now, the SU freshman also knows there are a ton of little things he has to work on – like running and catching – before he worries about the big picture.

Ashton Broyld: From Start To Finish To New Beginning
February 3, 2011
From the moment he stepped on a high school varsity football field, he made a difference. Four years ago the 6'3 220lb giant known as Ashton Broyld was taking over at QB for a Marshall Jursist team that had just lost the NY State Championship the year before. He had some big shoes to fill, the team was loaded with talent, and expectations were very high. The only question was the new freshman QB. Broyld wasted no time exceeding expectations, after a slow start the team finished the regular season as the last and final #8-Seed entering sectionals. Up to this point on-lookers had seen only glimpses of greatness from the freshman. Once sectionals began, everyone would understand that a star was in the making. Broyld's team would face the #1-Seed Churchville Chili Lions featuring their own SU bound star Averin Collier. It was in the 4th Qtr, 4th and 7, his team was down 3 points with about 6 minutes remaining, the snap was low and the ball was fumbled to the ground, the freshman picked up the ball, defenders in his face, Broyld made it back to the line of scrimmage, and was hit by 2 tacklers, the freshman began to take the tacklers for a ride, as he took step after step, more defenders piled on, the QB was moving the entire crowd. Even more tacklers got involved, however nothing was stoping the momentum of the young star! Finally Broyld goes down, the referee says 1st Down! No measurment was needed, his team had renewed life and went on to win the game as Broyld put his team on his back, and took over the game.
Those were the memories that were awaken by his latest football victory. The 2010 New York State Championship! The opponents were the Troy Flying Horses, after four years the entire state realized that as a QB, Broyld was hands down #1 in the state. It was his play in the second half that made him the State MVP, he had arrived as a overall football player. Broyld took over the defensive side of the ball, playing Outside Linebacker leading the defense with 8 Tackles, 2 Sacks and a Forced Fumble. Once again putting his team on his back, and showing true leadership. There hasn't been a high school player in the entire state of New York that had been more impressive in years. He had completed his high school career at the top, as his Royal Comets defeated Troy in the State Championship Game.
Shortly after, the offers began to roll in for Broyld. And his desire to play QB led him to sign his letter of intent to Syracuse University under the direction of Head Coach Doug Marrone, who promised Broyld an opportunity at the position. If that doesn't work out for Broyld, he is open to different positions for the Orangeman. The Rochester native, is from a football family, his father, Ashley Sims, played QB for East High School, and earned a full scholarship to Maryland University, and his uncle Branden Albert, was a 1st-Round pick for the Kansas City Chiefs. Broyld is part of the Class of 2011 that will open the door for Section V recruits for years to come. Congratulations once again to Syracuse bound Ashton Broyld, hopefully he can put the Orangeman on his back and take over a BCS Title game during his tenure there as well. Good Luck Ashton!
