De’Anthony Thomas Visits Local School

EUGENE, Ore. — Students at McCornack Elementary got a special message from one of the Duck football team’s star players Thursday.

De’Anthony Thomas toured the school and spoke to a classroom before heading to the gym for the assembly. There, he answered kids’ questions about his childhood, how he started playing football and what his plans are after college.

“They still have a long life to live, so I just wanted to get the message to them to never let anyone say you can’t do anything and stay focused and stay positive,” Thomas said.

Thomas says he hopes to visit every school in Lane County this year to help inspire students to stay in school and take on new challenges.
