In brief: Yes
Different folks have different reactions to the same infectious agent.
Thus strep , in some, may have fever, sore throat and achiness, just like influenza.

In brief: Strep
Strep throat can make you feel pretty lousy and flu-like.
Similar between strep and flu are fever, muscle aches, and a general feeling of "unwellness". While strep throat features a sore throat, this is often not seen in flu. Flu also features a heavy cough, which is usually seen with strep throat.
