Detroit Martin Luther King | SB/DB/KR, 5-11, 175 - Senior
Thomas has tremendous breakaway speed to go with his ability to quickly change direction. A three-year starter, Thomas is a playmaker. Coach Tyrone Spencer has done his best to get the ball in Thomas’ hands this season. Thomas missed six games last season, played the last two, and had ACL surgery when the season ended. He’s been offered a scholarship by Florida, U-M, MSU, Penn State and Pittsburgh. On Oct. 15 he returned a punt 86 yards for a TD in a 27-25 victory over East English. In last week’s 41-20 loss to Cass Tech Thomas had six receptions for 166 yards and three TDs, and six tackles on defense. For the season Thomas has 18 receptions for 607 yards and seven TDs. He’s returned two punts for a TD, a kickoff and an interception for a TD and, defensively, Thomas has 32 tackles and five pass deflections.
