Star junior Logan Thomas led Brookville (Lynchburg, VA) to a 9-4 overall record including a Division 3, Region III championship title in 2007. Thomas, the starting quarterback for the Bees, has drawn serious interest from Division 1A programs. He currently boasts three scholarship offers from ACC programs and is likely to receive more offers by the time his junior year comes to an end.
“UVa has offered, Virginia Tech has offered and Wake Forest has offered,” Brookville head coach Jeff Woody said. “A lot of other schools have shown interest. UNC, N.C. State, Maryland and Stanford have shown interest. For the most part, he and his family are doing a lot of the work on their own.

I think Logan might want to play receiver. He has the best hands I’ve ever seen. He can throw well. He has the height advantage to scan the field. I think he could do anything he wants to do.”
This offseason, Thomas’ main priority is adding good weight to his 6-6, 220-pound frame.
“He has got a frame that has not yet filled out,” Woody said. “He is currently taking a weightlifting class with...
