Stroshine Ready To Break Out In '14

Feather River LB Nate Stroshine (6-1, 245) hopes to build off of a solid freshman season with a big 2014 season...

Stroshine enjoyed a solid prep career at Mountainview High School in Orem, Utah. Shortly after graduating, he decided to head out on his LDS mission.

He enrolled at Snow Junior College to take part in spring football in 2013, but decided to leave shortly thereafter when his brother-in-law, who was recruited by the Feather River coaches, suggested he give the Golden Eagles a look.

"The coaches were great and I liked the area and the program," Stroshine told

As a freshman last fall, Stroshine racked up 41 tackles, 3.5 tackles-for-loss and 1/2 a sack while manning the middle of the Golden Eagle defense.

"Having a guy like Kyle Newsom next to me really made things easy," Stroshine noted. "He made so many plays, it allowed me to flow and make my plays and I felt like we played well together."

Now, with Newsom gone, Stroshine will be counted on to be one of the leaders of a defense that should be talented, but very young.

"We have some talented guys and I think our speed is pretty good," Stroshine said. "That's one thing I've really been working on, my speed, and also studying a lot of film."

Stroshine does not have any offers yet, but there were plenty of schools by during the spring and he hopes a good sophomore season will garner him some looks.

"I don't care who offers, I will listen to everyone because these are all great opportunities for me," Stroshine said. "I'm open to anyone that wants to offer me, but I can't worry about that. I just have to do what I have to do to get ready for my season and the rest of it will take care of itself."

Stroshine, who turns 24 in August, is on pace to finish up his two-year degree in December and he will have three years to play two following the 2014 football season.
