NORMAN — Oklahoma quarterback commit Cody Thomas, from Colleyville (Texas) Heritage, was named this week’s U.S. Army All-American Bowl High School Player of the Week for his performance in last Friday’s 56-47 win at Irving MacArthur.
In the game, Thomas threw for 541 yards and seven touchdowns. But making the performance even more impressive was his poise after MacArthur jumped out to an early, three-touchdown lead.
“He’s a strong competitor, but doesn’t let it get him either way,” said Lisa Thomas, Cody’s mother, after the game. “He wants to win, and he’s gonna go out there and fight for his teammates.”
On the season, he’s completed 137 of 217 passes for 2,160 yards and 22 scores and four interceptions.
Thomas committed to OU in May after receiving a scholarship offer from Sooners co-offensive coordinator Josh Heupel. The 6-foot-5, 220-pound senior is also a standout on the baseball diamond, leading many to speculate that he may decide against playing college football if he’s drafted by a Major League Baseball team in June.
