Christopher’s Ahola does it all

Christopher High School junior receiver Cody Ahola is doing everything in his power to be successful.

Motivated by helping his team come out victorious every Friday night and garnering a free education so that his parents do not have to pay for college, Ahola is putting in all of the hours it takes required to make those ambitions come to fruition.

Working with Deliberate Training. Putting in those extra hours. Whatever it takes to be successful on and off the field while earning an opportunity at the next level.

“It would mean everything to me,” Ahola said.

Right from the moment Ahola started playing football in sixth grade, he has been inching closer and closer to making those dreams a reality.

Just a couple of years into his career on the gridiron, Ahola dominated as an eighth grader against his age group, highlighting what would continue being a star-studded football career.

And Ahola has only grown since then, too.

“These last couple years I’ve exponentially grown just with my footwork, my strength, everything, my speed,” Ahola said.

Last season, Ahola did everything right despite being just a young sophomore at the varsity level.

He caught 86 passes for 1,019 receiving yards and eight scores, with his 1,019 receiving yards ranking No. 91 in California and sixth among sophomores in the state, according to statistics available on MaxPreps. Four of the eight games he played in featured 100-plus yards, sprinklin in a dazzling 243-yard effort on 17 receptions against Carmel.

Additionally, Aholda totaled 123 yards and three touchdowns on the ground, tagging alongside his two tackles for loss defensively.

On top of that, Ahola – also a Central Coast Section baseball champion during his freshman season – was named the CCS Sophomore of the Year.

Now Ahola is building on that success in what has been a busy offseason – one where he has doubled his strength.

“So far the offseason has been going great,” Ahola said. “I’ve been getting a lot stronger and a lot better out here on the field.”

Ahola is hoping to add on to what has been a star-studded tenure at Christopher High School every step of the way and add to both his and the Cougars’ profile.

“I want to be first team all-league and I want to win CCS,” Ahola said.
