The Ketochi

Ashley Tait
Through his experience with his high school newspaper and two internships as a sports writer for the Great Falls Tribune, high school English teacher Ashley Tait has had journalism in his blood for most of his life.  Now in his 20th year of teaching and third as the adviser of The Ketochi.  When he has a birthday or Father's Day meal, Tait gladly requests his wife's enchiladas for dinner.  Since 1982, he has been a die-hard Los Angeles Lakers fan who shed several tears before, during, and after Kobe Bryant's final game in April of 2016.  In addition to his Lakers affection, Tait also follows the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets very closely.  His favorite superhero has always been Batman, so it's no surprise that his favorite movie is The Dark Knight.  An avid music fan who carries over 6,000 songs on his phone, Tait most enjoys the hard-driving melodic rock of '80s Christian metal band Stryper and the beautiful melodies of R&B icon Kenny "Babyface" Edmonds.  Raised by a high school basketball coach, Tait has a deep affinity for the game and once played on a 3-on-3 basketball team with Pearl Jam bassist (and Big Sandy native) Jeff Ament.  His greatest accomplishments in life are his 21-year marriage and five sons, Trayden, Trennen, Tallen, Tyrenn, and Taxten.
