Before the season started, UConn Huskies football head coach Bob Diaco had said that wide receiver Noel Thomas had a chance to become a special player in Storrs, CT. So far Thomas has made Diaco look good on that.
When you get a chance to see Thomas play, you can tell he’s a step above the rest. But it’s what he does in practice that makes him a better player.
You’ll see him working with the younger guys, whether it be on the JUGS machine or working on their hand/eye coordination to helping with routes, Thomas is there being a leader.
During his press conference on Tuesday, Diaco talked about Thomas’ growth. Thomas also talked about what he’s done on and off the field to be a better person and football player.
