HARRISONBURG, Va. – For the first time in a decade, the Blue Streaks did not make the postseason, a year ago. In 2013, Chris Thurman is certain that will not happen again.
It's year three for Thurman at Harrisonburg and the Streaks, finally seem to be settling in well. Team chemistry, a new attitude and five starters back on both sides of the ball have Harrisonburg thinking about returning to their successful history.
Offensively, Harrisonburg will run a spread package, with Matt Shifflett taking the snaps. Ryan Nixon will shift outside to play wide receiver. Defensively Thurman says the Streaks will run a 5-2.
Harrisonburg is the lone Valley District team in Group 4A, and the only high school of that size in our coverage area. The Streaks are now a member of 4A North Conference 23 with Charlottesville, Fluvanna, Louisa County, Amherst County and Handley.
