To win, Strasburg needs to throw

Posted 2018-11-13

    Rams quarterback Chase Hart has improved his passing accuracy, and Strasburg has two of the Bull Run District’s best receivers in Trevor Sager and Stephen Kloosterman.

    Hart has thrown for more than 1,000 yards, completing 68 of 134 attempts for 20 touchdowns and only four interceptions.  He also can run with the ball and has been difficult to tackle.

    Kloosterman has caught 11 passes for touchdown and Sager eight. Sager also scored on an interception.

     Jalen Bray, Strasburg’s leading rusher, has gained more than 750 yards and scored 10 touchdowns. Fullback Gregory Mason provides the power game on short yardage plays and is an excellent blocker.

    Sophomore Jesse Funkhouser and junior Da’Neil Holliday play both offense and defense.

    The question at the beginning of the season was how well Strasburg’s offensive and defensive lines would perform. Seniors Hunter and Levi Miller and Cameron Harmon, sophomore Patchrick Kennedy and junior Brandon Swafford have risen to the challenge.

    Linebackers are Alex Campbell, Ferrell and Holiday.

    The Rams secondary, senior Landon Elliott, sophomore Sean McKinley, Funkhouser, junior Sean McKinley and junior Peter McKechnie, have matured over time and Strasburg’s record is proof of it.
