Super 30: No. 3 Kendal Thompson, Southmoore...
By Robert Przybylo
The rumors were running rampant after last season that Kendal Thompson was going to bolt from Southmoore to head to Heritage Hall to play with Barry Sanders and win a state championship.
The private schools writer in me was excited about seeing that duo carve up the competition one game after another, but I’m glad Thompson is back with the SaberCats.
Southmoore had so much talent last year and yea, the losses of Mason Myers, Julian Wilson, Austin Haywood, etc., definitely don’t have the expectations as high as last year. But this will be the true test in my eyes.
This year is certainly going to be Thompson’s team. To go with running back Andrew Long, these are the guys that are going to have to make sure Southmoore isn’t just a one-hit wonder.
Saw Thompson play a couple of times last year (admittedly, they weren’t his best games). However, when a play needed to be made, he came through. That’s the kind of toughness you need from a quarterback, and that’s what you’re looking for from a leader.
Southmoore isn’t the darlings of the state going into this season, so maybe this year is even more important to sustaining the success of the program. Thompson knows how to deal with adversity and pressure, being Charles Thompson’s son will do that for ya.
Thompson could hide out in the crowd of all the talent last year. Now it’s his time. The four-star recruit is ready.
