Real Deal in Colleyville

Cody Thomas

Scout.com four-star quarterback and Oklahoma commit Cody Thomas is the real deal out on the football field...

Cody Thomas, a 6-foot-4, 220-pound quarterback from Colleyville (Texas) Heritage High showed in Friday's 35-30 win over Hurst (Texas) L.D. Bell that he has the skills to be the real deal in college.

The Oklahoma commit completed 25-of-41 passes for 405 yards and five touchdowns. The most impressive drive came late in the fourth quarter.

Trailing 28-30 Thomas and his Heritage high teammates took possession of the ball on the 2-yard line with only 1:27 remaining. Three completions later junior wide receiver Kaelin Deboskie was celebrating the game winning 77-yard score in the end-zone.

"We really didn't start the way we wanted to," Thomas explained. "There were little minor errors. We knew that we were going to work through it and we knew our defense was going to get some big stops, and they did."

"Hats off to my offensive line for giving me the time to make it all happen. This win goes to them."

Heritage is 9-1 on the year and they head in to a weekend match-up with Lewisville (Texas) Hebron in the first round of the 5A-DII playoffs at 8 PM CST on Saturday night at Cowboys Stadium in Arlington, Texas.

So far as a senior, Thomas leads the DFW area in passing. He has completed 206-of-322 (63.98%) for 3,363 yards and 38 score to only five interceptions. The touchdown-interception ratio shows the improvement he has made under center.

"I really feel like my decision making has improved," Thomas confirmed. "Seeing what's open, reading defenses. Stuff like that."

Thomas has not had time on his hands to make a ton of trips up to Norman during the season, but he did make one unofficial trip to catch the Sooners take out Kansas.

"I went to the homecoming game against Kansas," Thomas said. "It was a lot of fun. I have been up there before and it is always a loud place. I love going up there."

Thomas will be back on campus taking his official visit during the weekend of Bedlam.

"I will be taking my official for OSU," Thomas informed. " (I am) Just looking for a more personal experience and getting to know the coaches better, getting around the players and getting a real feel for what it is like to be an Oklahoma Sooner."
