Stromer was chosen by by using their “analytical data, as well as a voting panel consisting of national college basketball media, scouts, former/retired coaches, and other individuals with a pulse on the profession and the coaches who serve it.”


“Stromer has taken the lead. Not only on our list, but in recruiting too. Bringing in five All-Iowa Conference performers, he ended up coaching seven! Turning out first and second team all-conference players seemingly at will, his experience at the DI and DII level is obvious. Winning a national championship as a DII player he understands the work. He furthered that knowledge under COY Keno Davis at Drake. From Operations to on court development, Stromer Bulldogs his way to historic season after season after season.”
