USAAAB: Thomas Will Run in College
DeAnthony Thomas, a 5-foot-9, 165-pound athlete from Crenshaw High School in Ca., was honored to be selected as an Army All-American, but to him it means so much more. "I did not just come out here to be an All-American," stated Thomas. "I came out here to support my family, my school and where I come from." On the day he had the tough task of trying to lock down a very talented receiving corp. Sometimes he won and sometimes he lost the battle, but all-in-all he had a solid day and proved that he has a high upside at the position. "Yes," Thomas responded if he performed up to his expectation. "I had to just get back used to doing it because I was never playing corner in the season I was playing safety, but it does not matter I still know the techniques and the fundamentals of playing corner." Despite the fact he has the skills to be an excellent defender he says he will be all offense on the next level. "I am a natural fit at corner, but next year I will be playing running back at USC. I have a style like Reggie Bush and I want to go in there and win a Heisman trophy just like he did!"
