Aaron Corp, Richmond’s starting quarterback for the last two seasons (other than the games he missed due to an injury) can be proud of his achievements.
I had the pleasure of watching him play three times.
He endured despite an offense without a ground game, a brand new offensive line, injured receivers and the sudden dismissal of the head coach. Corp was the offense along with splendid receiver Trey Gray, who just might end up in the NFL. Corp, himself, attracted some interest. They would join running backs Tim Hightower, Josh Vaughn and kick returner/defensive back Justin Rogers if selected.
Next season will be a continuation of rebuilding. New head coach Danny Rocco, who replaced interim coach Wayne Lineburg, announced the transfer of quarterback Michael Strauss from the University of Virginia.
Strauss was a redshirt for the Cavaliers under former Richmond player and coach Mike London.
At the rate Richmond and Virginia trade coaches and players, shuttle van service should be introduced on I-64 between the two schools.
Strauss, from Key Biscayne, FL, had an impressive career in high school. He was ranked among the nation’s top 50 quarterback recruits.
Since he matriculated at Richmond this semester, he will be eligible to play in spring practice. There is no waiting period for players who transfer from FBS to FCS schools, so Strauss could conceivably start in the fall.
