Pitt paper article on Thomas



A 6-foot-1, 185-pound quarterback/defensive back on the football team.

Thomas completed 5 of 7 passes for 170 yards and two touchdowns, ran for a third score and intercepted a pass Friday, leading the Jayhawks (11-0) to a 46-18 rout of Riverside in the WPIAL Class AA quarterfinals.

A junior, Thomas has started at quarterback for two seasons and on defense for one. The Jayhawks are 21-1 with him under center. This year, he has completed 65 of 140 passes for 1,168 yards and 15 touchdowns, run for eight touchdowns and returned one of three interceptions for a score. He threw for more than 900 yards in 2002.

"Going deep is my strength," said Thomas, who threw two 58-yard touchdown passes Friday. But strong-arm tactics aren't his only trademark. "Jordan can beat you throwing or with his legs," said Jayhawks coach Bob Murphy. "He's very athletic. He makes a lot of big plays scrambling. Jordan is outstanding on defense, too, but we try to give him a little time off there. He's a great leader, but the biggest thing about him is he is a competitor."

During the winter, Thomas keeps order on the court. He has been the starting point guard for the Jeannette boys' basketball team since his first game as a freshman. Thomas was first-team All-Section 1-AA last season, when he averaged 13.1 points and 5.0 assists per game..

An honor student, Thomas said he likes football and basketball equally but is leaning toward college football.
