Thunander played as a true freshman on the 1999 OU football team and was a key reserve on the 2000 national championship squad. An ear canal injury ended his football career after that season, but he completed his bachelor's degree in 2007.

Thunander wrote "Silent Thunder," an autobiography released last year that delved into his life as a deaf athlete who also tried to overcome abuse within the family and his own depression.
