CB Thomas impressive at Dawgs' camp

ATHENS – Georgia's 2006 Summer Camp had players from all across the South invited. That long list included one local player that was looking to gain some exposure from two in-state schools. Come inside to read more about what one impressive camper had to say about Georgia and its camp.

Aaron Thomas, a cornerback from Stephenson, was in Athens for Georgia's summer camp. Thomas is a stout cornerback with good speed, who knows to "pinch" receivers just before the ball comes down. Thomas said he enjoyed his trip to Athens.

"Camp went well for me," Thomas said. "There was a lot of competition, and some great coaching. It was a great experience."

Thomas was one of over 30 Stephenson players at the camp. The Jaguars were all over the place, but Thomas was most notable because he was mainly in one-on-one drills, and was excelling at them. Still, the DeKalb County cornerback was happy to learn new things in Athens.

"I picked up a few things as far as technique is concerned that I had not seen before," Thomas added.

Thomas in interested in several schools around the South, but does not have a scholarship offer yet. The rising senior indicated that Georgia, Georgia Southern and Florida State were the three teams he was most interested in hearing from. There were some Georgia Southern staff members helping during the Bulldogs' camp.

"I think I competed well. I think I was up there with some of the top guys out here this weekend," Thomas said.

Hopefully for Thomas his work will lead to offers soon.
