Hunter Strohm, freshman catcher at Lower Dauphin, recently made his commitment to the University of Virginia.

The 6’1”, 190 lbs catcher has not played an inning yet with the Falcons. Strohm also plays for the Keystone State Bombers 14U National team. During his time with the Bombers he made the Perfect Game All Tournament Team eight times and won the Tournament MVP four times.

Strohm has an impressive pop-up time of 1.95-2.07 secs, topped with an exit velocity of 96 MPH, catcher velocity of 75 MPH, and an arm velocity of 76 MPH.

According to Perfect Game, the freshman phenom was ranked in the top ten in the state of Pennsylvania for the class of 2026 and on Prep Baseball Report ninth in the state of Pennsylvania for the class of 2026.

The University of Virginia and other colleges were super impressed with Strohm’s ability to play before he got to the high school field; they offered him a spot on the team.

The future Cavalier was a starting linebacker for the Lower Dauphin Falcons Varsity Football team. Strohm also shared time at full back. Strohm tallied up 90 total tackles, averaged 10.0 tackles per game and had 2.5 sacks.

After being asked why he chose the University of Virginia, the Falcon had this to say, “I feel like for me, Virginia had everything I was looking for. It includes a great town, amazing academics, top notch baseball, and a fantastic coaching staff. Virginia was top of my list since I could even remember so once I was offered it was no doubt.”

Strohm is prepared and excited to make some noise for the Falcons and the Cavaliers in the future.
