Player Spotlight: Isaiah Thomas C/O ’21 Tailback/Defensive Back

Isaiah Thomas is a sensational senior athlete for Braulio Alonso High School in Tampa, Florida.

Thomas plays on both sides of the ball for the Ravens, seeing time at tailback on offense and as a defensive back on defense.

On the year in reserve duty, Thomas rushed for 7 yards per carry in his limited touches, as well as a touchdown.

On defense, Thomas grabbed 19 tackles in his Covid-shortened season, as well as a sack on the year, plus 2 PBU’s.

Standing at 5’10, 185 pounds, Thomas has solid size to play either position at the next level.

In the weight-room, Thomas works hard, as he has a max squat of 335 pounds and a deadlift max of 315 pounds.

Thomas felt as though he senior season went as well as one could have imagined, dealing with Covid-19.

“We had a successful season towards the end,” Thomas said. “We ended up making it to the playoffs had a rematch against a team we had already played, but unfortunately, we lost.

“Covid played a part in all of it. We had several guys go down due to contract tracing and we were missing key players. I was thankful to be there and I tried my best to rally my teammates and just remain focused on the game. We fought a tough game and I was just happy to have made it there.”

Thomas does great things on and off the field, and he wanted to share with coaches what type of player they will be getting as a potential recruit.

“No matter the task, I hustle all the time,” Thomas said. “I refuse to lose or give up. Although I started playing football late in my life, I became a legitimate threat due to the extra work that I put in on and off the field.

“I feel like although I stepped away from the game for a bit for wrestling, I have come back even better for it and I know I will do great things for my college team.”

In the classroom, Thomas is dynamic as well, as he has a current GPA of 3.7, which is more than enough to qualify him for many, many schools.

It will be interesting to see where this wonderful player and young man ends up!
