Frostproof has moved to fill its open coaching positions by naming new head coaches for boys soccer and boys basketball.

Ashley Cockrell is returning to the high school ranks as she will take over the boys soccer program, and Jonathan Johnson IV is the new boys basketball coach.

Cockrell is a familiar face in Polk County soccer. She coached the Lake Wales girls team for five years and led the Highlanders to two district titles and was The Ledger’s 2012-13 coach of the year. She left Lake Wales in 2013 and coached Webber International for five years. The Warriors made the conference tournament in four of her five seasons as coach. She takes over for Josh Wood, who stepped down in the spring, but remains as the boys cross-country and track coach.

A native of Atlanta, Cockrell grew up in Sharpsburg, Ga. She began playing soccer when she was 5 and played on boys teams until she was 10 and began playing club soccer for the Atlanta Lightning Soccer Club when she was 12.

In high school, she continued playing soccer and also lettered in four other sports: track, softball, basketball and football. She was the place-kicker in football in her junior and senior seasons.

Cockrell, whose maiden name is Martin, signed with Jacksonville State to play women’s soccer and was a four-year starter at forward. She also was the football team’s place-kicker in her junior and senior seasons and became the first woman to score in a Division I football game when she kicked an extra point against Cumberland, a game Jacksonville State won 72-10.

Cockrell led the soccer team in scoring in 2001 and was inducted into the school’s hall of fame in 2003. She graduated in 2002 with degrees in psychology and English and earned a master’s degree in sports business management while at Webber. She is married to Jake Cockrell and has three children, Kenzie, 13, Cash, who turns 11 next week, and Birdie, 8.

Johnson was born and raised in Lake Wales and graduated from Lake Wales High School in 2003 and earned a degree in dental technology from Indian River State College.

Taking over for Herb Johnson, the new Frostproof coach (no relation) has coached basketball at the recreational level (AAU and YBOA), Bok Academy and spent two years as Frostproof’s junior varsity coach and one year as varsity assistant.

Johnson is married to Amber and has two children, Lilly, 3, and John, 1.
