Thomas spent the past two seasons with Shock head coach Billy Back and the Carolina Cobras, averaging nearly a sack per game and coming in at 2nd in forced fumbles.
A superior athlete, the 6’5, 340-pound Nose Guard can do a full front flip and is a force in the interior line. Thomas has played for Back his entire career, most recently with the Carolina Cobras in 2018-2019, the Wichita Falls Nighthawks in 2016-2017 and for the Nashville Venom from 2014-2015. Thomas’ 27 tackles and five sacks in 2016 earned him Second Team All-IFL recognition while he was a First Team All-IFL selection in 2015. His 2014 Nashville squad won the IFL Championship.
The Galveston, Texas native began his college career at Oklahoma State before attending Northwest Mississippi Community College.
