Recruiting: Texas athlete Stroman Bridges joins Army 2025 class

Quarterback. Slotback. Wide Receiver.

Stroman Bridges has played all three positions for Midland (Texas) High.

When it comes to what position he will play at the next level, the choice is in many ways up Bridges after his commitment to Army Wednesday morning.

No matter where Bridges lines up, Army has added a versatile talent with a team-first mindset to its 2025 class. Bridges broke his collarbone in the preseason before his junior season. He returned for the district playoffs and saw action at quarterback and slotback.

“Army is recruiting me to play whatever position I want to play,” said Bridges, who Army initially sees as a slotback. “They really appreciate my ability to play multiple positions. My high school runs a similar (triple option) offense and I see myself fitting in perfect with (Army’s).”

Bridges gave his verbal commitment to offensive line coach Mike Viti. The phone was passed to most of Army’s offensive coaching staff. The decision came after Bridges’ first visit to West Point last weekend. Bridges has been “a big fan for years” of Army football, watching the Army-Navy game with his father every year.

“I absolutely loved it (the visit) and loved the coaches,” Bridges said. “I knew that’s where I wanted to go.”

Bridges, who runs the 40-yard dash in 4.5 seconds, is competing in the track meet in El Paso Thursday. He’s took first place in the 300 hurdles five times this season.

On the football field, Bridges said his best qualities are “strength and power.” Bridges has gained 18-20 pounds to 190 since the football season through school lifts.

“Midland High has the best high school football weight program in the country in my opinion,” Bridges said.
