The Preseason All-State will split into two days this year after a banner event in 2018 saw over 100 players descend on Virginia Sports Complex in Ruther Glen, Virginia to be seen by the PBR VA/DC staff. In the coming weeks, we will spotlight players that we are excited to see again at our biggest pre-season event.

Scouting Report

Fall Invite 11/4/2018

Strong physical frame. Gets great separation and usage of the lower half first. Balanced upright finish. Barrel has some explosion through the zone with good hand and wrist strength. In the outfield Thomas fields off the glove side well and utilizes his physical strength into the throw. Behind the dish he transfers the ball to hand quickly and body stays in the throwing lane. Could improve by firming the front leg up on foot strike to allow the backside to finish the throw.
