All-American Selection: 1989
Tailback, 1989, Philadelphia, Pa., selected by Walter Camp and The Football News. Thomas is the only back in Penn State history to gain 1,300 or more yards in two seasons. His lifetime totals are 3,301 rushing and 4,512 all-purpose. Thomas came back from major reconstructive knee surgery to turn in a brilliant senior season with eight 100-yard games, including six straight to close the campaign, and 1,341 yards on 264 carries. He finished 10th in voting for the 1989 Heisman Trophy. As the No. 2 pick overall by the New York Jets in the 1990 National Football League Draft, Thomas became the highest drafted Penn State player at the time since the first combined NFL-American Football League Draft in 1969. Thomas played with the Jets (1990-93), New England (1994), Dallas (1994) and Carolina (1995). He lives in Plymouth Meeting, Pa.
