The Orange Leader
Take a look at the pictures scattered across this page. This was Earl Thomas before the rest of the world knew what many football fans in Southeast Texas already knew - Earl would be great.
Thomas is now headed into his fourth, yes fourth, year in the NFL. He was drafted with the 14th pick in the 2010 NFL Draft.
He has since been to two Pro Bowls, has been named an All-Pro the last two seasons and has 10 interceptions in three years.
This week we wanted to take a look back. Back at the times when Earl was a part of a tremendous team with the West Orange-Stark Mustangs.
Thomas will turn 24 on May 7 so we wish him an early happy birthday and congratulate him on growing into Orange’s top star.
