Kansas State definitely could use another impact tackle like Travis Britz (95) on its defensive line this season, especially with Drew Wiley having graduated. Perhaps Elliott Strahm will fit the bill...?

NOTE: Kansas State has elected to advance players’ classification even though the 2020 season did not affect eligibility. Those who wish to take advantage of this extra year will be listed as a (“super”) senior again after their original eligibility would have been exhausted.

Elliott Lane Strahm (b. Aug. 6, 2000) is a defensive tackle who walked on from Sabetha High School and is majoring in agribusiness. He redshirted during the 2019 season and saw action in 2020 against Kansas, but did not record any statistics.

A four-year letter-winner for the Bluejays under head coach Garrett Michael, Strahm was a two-time first-team all-state selection by The Topeka Capital-Journal and The Wichita Eagle.

He also was named to the top-11 team by both organizations in 2018 after playing on both offense and defense, helping Sabetha to earn two straight state championships and a combined 26-1 record over his junior and senior seasons.

Strahm also helped the Bluejays to limit teams to just 10.1 points per game in 2018, while he blocked for a rushing attack that averaged 310.7 rushing yards in 2018 and 325.4 rushing yards in 2017.

He totaled 152 career tackles and 13 career sacks, including 39 tackles and three sacks as a senior, and also was a three-time state qualifier in wrestling and a state champion in 2018, while he was a three-time state qualifier in the shot put.
