Thomson's summer trip

Originally recruited as an H-Back, freshman Blake Thomson has shifted to LB and has done pretty well with the transition.
He’s no stranger to the position. Thomson played both TE and LB at Battle Ground Academy in Tenn.
“You can’t tell how naturally a guy is going to be instinctively,” coach Tony Reno said. “He was very natural. He understands schemes, he understands where he fits. He’s very athletic for a linebacker, he covers well. He gotten an opportunity and he’s performed.”
Thomson is one of many freshman who has gotten an early shot to contribute and has 13 tackles on the season.
What’s most intriguing about Thomson is his story off the field.
