Strahm verbally commits to Montana

EUGENE, OR - Sheldon's Connor Strahm has verbally committed to play football for the University of Montana and will likely play either safety or outside linebacker for the Grizzlies.

Strahm played both offense and defense for the Irish. He was voted as the Class 6A defensive player of the year in 2012. The 6-1, 210-pound Strahm also made the first team on offense at tight end.

Strahm had two crucial interceptions in Sheldon's 13-6 win over Lake Oswego in the state championship game. He made a diving grab in the end zone in the second quarter to foil one threat and returned an interception 44 yards to set up a field goal in the fourth quarter.

Strahm joins Eugene native Taylor Walcott in Missoula. Walcott played wide receiver for Marist High School and will be a sophomore at Montana in the fall.
