Short and Insufficient Profile: Antonio Thomas

OK, so, during the dragging, sweaty, uncomfortable months of summer, we flippantly mentioned that we would be profiling every player on the team. It will only be fun and worthwhile, we decided, if we were both informative AND funny. Well, it would be really fun if we were drunk the entire time, but that’s neither here nor there. Thus, for these ten weeks leading up to the UL game, we will have at least one profile a day. We hope you enjoy these as much as we enjoyed the idea of doing them, but not the actual task. Oh, and we see the egregious “that’s what she said” in the headline.

We’d also like to use this italicized space to apologize to the families of the players whose last names end in ‘A’ or ‘B’ because these early ones might suck a little.

Boring, Obligatory Vitals

Height–6’1”

Weight–228

40–N/A

Year–Freshman

Position–Linebacker

Hometown–Cowpens, SC (Broome)

Unfair comparison to NFL-er: Speedy outside linebacker, ala Terrell Suggs.

Most interesting fact from his media guide bio: Returned an interception 95 yards for a TD in high school, the longest in Broome HS history. Played with fellow Cat Antwane Glenn, profiled here.

Something we made up about him: Inventor of the “cow pen,” hence his hometown’s name. Cowpen, SC, population: 1.

Items of legitimate interest: Played wide receiver and defensive back in high school, but added some weight and moved to linebacker. First team All-State in South Carolina. Chose UK over Vandy. Nerds.

Outlook for 2008, based on light research by our minions: Looking for time behind Sam Maxwell and Johnny Williams.
