Thomas is one of the hardest working and genuinely driven young men I have ever coached. He will excel in anything he attempts.

Thomas is a hard-working, focused player who is always looking to get better at the x. He's strong, and comfortable staying low to beat his opponent for GBs. His quick hand-speed and strong balance will make him one of the best face-off men in the state.

Justin M Young

Thomas is a coach's dream. Team first player with a work ethic that is unsurpassed.
