About Thayer Thomas

Thayer Thomas, Football
B.S., Business Administration, Operations and Supply Chain Management

Graduate Student studying Sports Management

A Raleigh, NC native, Thayer grew up a three-sport athlete, playing football, baseball and basketball. Through hard work, determination and consistency, he manifested his dreams into reality as an unrecruited walk-on. Returning for his fifth year, he's now tied for third in school history with 20 career touchdown receptions, ranked seventh in school history with 158 career receptions, and has posted the eighth-best career punt return average in school history at 10.9 yards per return.

He loves training and all that goes into preparation for the season. During the offseason you'll find him working on his craft and focusing on self-improvement in all aspects of his life. When he's not competing and training, he loves to travel, bowl, and you might also find him playing a round of golf or frisbee golf.
