Brookville (Lynchburg, VA) star athlete Logan Thomas will ultimately make one school very happy whenever he makes his college choice. However, he must first decide which sport he wants to play. Thomas, a 6-6, 220-pound standout in football and basketball, has scholarship offers for both sports and does not seem too interested in playing both sports on the college level.
“I thought at first that I would be basketball all the way,” Thomas said. “Then, this past year, I showed that I can be a pretty good football player. I think it’ll be hard for me to choose either way because I love both sports. Right now, I’m undecided but I probably will make a decision on which sport I’ll play by the summer.
“If I choose football, I’ll probably just choose football. If I choose basketball, it’ll probably be the same way.”
On the gridiron in 2007, Thomas performed well on both sides of the ball in leading Brookville to a 9-4 overall record and an appearance in the state playoff semifinals. He accounted for approximately 1,500 yards of total offense (about 1,000 passing and 500 rushing) while also leading the team in tackles.
“I think I played well,” Thomas said. “I think the team played well. We started off 2 and 3 and then won seven games in a row until we lost in the state semis. We had a real good year. I just enjoyed the whole season, getting into the state semifinals and everything. Our team has a bunch of real cool guys.”
In his sophomore season, Thomas hauled in 55 receptions from the wide receiver position. Brookville head coach Jeff Woody moved the talented athlete to quarterback prior to game three this past season.
“I didn’t know how it would go at first,” Thomas said. “I played quarterback on JV, but I didn’t get the full effect. The transition came pretty smooth. There were some bumps in the first game because we played against Salem, but after that it went smooth. My passing got a whole lot better. I didn’t expect to be a passing quarterback. I thought I would be a scrambling, rushing type of quarterback. I surprised myself.”
