Cody Thomas left the Elite 11 camp this summer in California, disappointed in his performance. To his standards, he had performed poorly. With his senior season coming up, he was out to prove that he was a much better player than he showed at the camp.
Regarded as not only one of the best quarterbacks in Texas, but in the entire country as well, Thomas lit up the stat sheet this year and led the Colleyville (Heritage) Panthers to an 11-2 season. The 6’5” 210 pounder threw for 4,221 this year with 46 touchdowns and only seven interceptions.
After a week four loss to district power Trinity, Thomas heated up and threw for three-or-more touchdowns in the remaining eight games of the season, including seven games where he threw for four touchdowns or more. The Panther offense was explosive all year, and scored an average of 45 points per game.
The season however came to a close with a 54-44 loss to Midway in the Class 5A Division II area-round game. In the loss, Thomas threw for 380 yards and four touchdowns.
Thomas’ 4,221 passing yards led all quarterbacks in the state of Texas.
He is a four-star recruit and the 98th overall player in the nation by 247Sports.
