STRASBURG, Va. -- Led by a Division I recruit at quarterback, expectations are high for the Strasburg High School football team in 2019.
Expectations are high for Strasburg this season. The Rams could be a breakout team in 2019.
Senior QB Chase Hart leads the offense. Earlier this summer he committed to play at the Division I FCS level for William & Mary. Hart is joined by a deep and experienced group of skill position players.
Strasburg could be a contender for the Bull Run District title in 2019. The Rams posted a 7-4 overall record last season and qualified for the Region 2B playoffs. The Rams' 2018 season ended with a first-round playoff defeat to Shenandoah County rival Central.
"I think the expectation is that we are going to be pretty successful," said Strasburg head coach Mark Roller. "We have a lot of returners coming back. We have a lot of experienced guys. We have kind of built from the last couple years so those guys have gotten a lot of playing time over the last couple years."
Strasburg opens the 2019 season Friday, August 30 in West Virginia when the Rams take on East Hardy.
