Congratulations Edwin Thomas!


Congratulations to John Carroll High School senior Edwin Thomas for participating in National Signing Day! Thomas committed to play with Independence Community College in Kansas next year and looks forward to being an integral part of its football team.

Independence Community College’s thriving football program is led by its head coach Steve Carson. The team has been sending an average of fifty players a year to BCS programs in a league that is compiled of eight teams. According to John Carroll High School’s head football coach, Mike Watkins, this is the highest per capita ratio of any in-state junior college league.

“Edwin will use this opportunity as a spring board and in two years will be a national recruit! The KJCCC is recruited by every major Division 1 football conference in the country. Edwin had a record-setting two year stint a JCHS,” remarked Watkins. “He is a great athlete and an amazing young man. I am very proud of him.”
