Sheldon HS ATH Connor Strahm (Eugene, OR) holds offers from Portland State and Montana, but a number of other schools have been showing interest as well, including Boise State. The talented ATH was in Boise last month for the annual Junior Day event, but is a Boise State offer in his future?

"I liked everything about it," he said. "I really like the coaches. They remind me a lot of ours here in Eugene. It's a very well-run program, academics come first, and then football. I liked that and really enjoyed the atmosphere at the spring game as well."

"They win a lot," he said in regards to Boise State. "I love everything about their program. They've only lost three games over the past four years so there's not much bad you can say about them. They're definitely a program that I'd like to be a part of."

"Boise State is recruiting me as a Safety," said Strahm. "I think what they like is my versatility. I can play multiple positions. Just last year I played three positions on offense and four on defense."

But will Boise State offer?

"It would be awesome if they did," he stated. "They have a meeting with my head coach next week and it would be an amazing opportunity, but you never know what will happen."

"Coach Smith will be there for the meeting. I think he'll making the rounds across Oregon."

The Bronco coaching staff told Strahm that they would like to see him at camp this summer and he says he plans on attending.

"They asked me at the Junior Day if I could come back for the camp. I told them I would," he said. "I'm thinking right now that I'll be at Boise State on Friday-Saturday, one day at Oregon State, and then the Nike Camp in Eugene. I might go to a few more, but I'm focused on those three right now."

"Coach Lake has been everywhere," said Strahm. "He has coached in the NFL, knows what he's talking about, and it would be great to play for him. Me and two other DBs had a 20-25 minute meeting with him at the Junior Day. It was great to be able to sit down with him, watch film, and have him show us what they do with their DBs."

"I sat down with Coach Petersen for about five minutes with my dad," he said. "It's easy to see why he's one of the most respected coaches in the nation," he added.

For now, Strahm (6'1, 210) says he's focused on the start of spring practice as he and his teammates will hit the practice field in just a couple weeks.

"We start at the end of May," he said. "I'm really looking forward to it. Our coaches have told us not to set any personal goals because those will come if we take care of business as a team. We want to win a league championship and then hopefully get back to the state championship. I'm hoping we can win it this year after being so close the last couple years."
