Things started out fast for Thomas as he broke off a 43-yard run on his first carry before finishing off the opening drive with a short touchdown run. Part of a solid first offensive performance for the Yellow Jackets, Thomas said it was something to build on as they prepare to face Carrolton (Ga.) High this Friday night.
"I felt like we did good," Thomas said. "There are some things we need to work on, but overall the offensive line did a great job, the receiving corps did a great job and the defense did a great job. I think it was a great job overall."
Putting the craziness of recruiting behind him as he gets ready for his senior season, Thomas said he's glad it's football time once again.
"It feels great," he noted. "Just practicing with my team and hitting those other guys, it feels good playing against somebody else."
