Mr. Straub was born in Texas. He graduated from Churchland High School in Portsmouth, VA in 2000. While at Churchland High School he participated in Varsity Football and Soccer teams. He later played football in college at Ferrum College where he received his B.S. in Physical Education with emphasis in Sports Medicine and a minor in Psychology. Mr. Straub has a son named Aiden that is 7 who enjoys running races and playing on his soccer team. Mr Straub also coaches at Nansemond River, he coaches the girls JV soccer team as well as the boys and girls varsity cross country team. I currently enjoy running anywhere from a 5k race to half marathon on the weekends. I would love to get more kids into running races on this website there is a link where you can find local races, maybe i’ll see you at one. If you tell me your going to run one I will sign up and run it with you.
