Matthew Ashford shoots movie -- and hoops -- in Orange City
Coach Loren DeJong, right, of MOC-FV High School is being portrayed by Matthew Ashford, left, in Winning Favor, a movie about Northwest Iowa basketball. Ashford, a native of Davenport, Iowa, starred for years as Jack Devereaux on DAYS OF OUR LIVES. He said he could return to DAYS sometime as his character is now in England.

"This is great," he said while polishing off a Mountain Dew at Jaycee Park near the high school campus. "I was born and raised in Iowa and this is what a I remember. My idyllic youth was spent here (in Iowa)."

One of eight children, Ashford played basketball on the driveway in Davenport until his parents moved the family to Virginia when he was 13.

This movie, he said, celebrates shared responsibilities and teamwork often found in small towns like Orange City. That two squads from the same city reached the pinnacle the same season speaks to the dedication these young men and their families had for the game and one another.
