ASHE COUNTY — Ashe County High School Athletic Director David Koontz announced Tuesday, Sept. 3 that the school has been entered into the #WEARITLIKEAPRO competition, held by the Carolina Panthers and Blue Cross and Blue Shield of North Carolina.

The competition allows for people to vote on the Panthers’ website for their choice of the dozens of high schools that have entered. One school will be chosen in each of the four classifications, and the winning schools will receive 24 brand new Riddell football helmets.

With Riddell’s Speed line of helmets ranging from $339.99 to $409.99, the 24 helmets would add up to cost thousands of dollars if purchased.

Voting is available until Oct. 15 at
