The Alabama Crimson Tide speedster burst onto the scene at the 2021 Rugby Showcase when he ran a 4.3 40. His speed at the combine event, coupled with strong showings on various 7s circuits throughout the country, the Virginia native caught the attention of the Gilgronis staff. He was selected seventh overall in the 2021 MLR Collegiate Draft.
During his rookie season, Strum appeared in a pair of contests and was credited with three ball carries for 34 meters gained. Most recently, Strum helped lift the Chicago Griffins to a Midwest Premiership title this past fall.
