Where Are They Now? Steve Thomas

Steve Thomas arrived at UGA in 2000 and played until his junior year, 2002-2003. During that season, Thomas averaged 10.2 pts per game and 7.3 rebounds.

Coach Jim Harrick left UGA in 2003, and shortly after the transition to Coach Felton, Thomas was dismissed. Thomas sat out one year and returned to action for the Middle Tennessee Blue Raiders during the 2004-2005 season, where he averaged 10.5 pts and 7.5 rebounds.

Thomas played overseas in Poland, and was named one of the Polish League All-stars. He was named Defensive Player of the Year in 2006. After a brief stint with the Atlanta Krunk, Thomas signed in February 2008 with the East Kentucky Miners. Thomas led the CBA in both rebounding (11.5 per game) and field goal percentage (62.5%).

Thomas is now playing overseas in the Philippines for the Air21 Express.

Although the music is bad, I felt some readers who remember Steve might appreciate seeing a youtube video featuring clips of his recent play.
