Recruit Profile
Highly coachable, powerful athletic faceoff specialist and midfielder with strong Lax IQ - highly disciplined multisport athlete

I have played lacrosse since I was 8 years old and hockey since I was 6 years old. I was voted team captain of my bantam AA hockey team and led my hockey team in points. I have won a Minnesota state championship at 14u for lacrosse. 2018 was my first year of taking face offs and I started on varsity. I pride my self on my hard work ethic both on and off the field, strength and power, hand speed, ground balls, and my ability to play defense and spark offense. I played some short stick man down midfield on both my club lacrosse team and high school team. I was just under 60% on face off win percentage for high school varsity and 70% face off win percentage for my club team. I received a deans award this year at The Blake school. As a sophomore I played varsity hockey as well, I was was 73% for the high school season. I received first team all conference and second team all section awards. I also have volunteered with the Hendrickson foundation which is a program for people with physical and mental disabilities that play sled hockey along with volunteering at Feed My Starving Children which is a food packing organization.

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.

Brandon Carlson

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

Justin M Young

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