Chad ThomasChad Thomas, a senior football player at Miami’s Booker T. Washington High School, has received 150 scholarship offers for his talent both on and off the gridiron.

The 18-year-old phenom plays not one, not two, but nine instruments and has been sought after by colleges around the country for his diverse skills.

Ultimately decided to go with the home team — Thomas will play football for the University of Miami and also hone his musical talents at the University’s Frost School of Music — the multi-talented teen credits his grandmother with his love of music.

Thomas helped lead the Booker T. Tornadoes to back-to-back state championships and win a national title this season. But it’s not only being on the field that he loves—Thomas says he fell in love with music at the age of three while listening to his late grandmother’s gospel CDS.

Thomas said his grandmother bought him a guitar and also signed him up for piano lessons. By the time he was five, Thomas was performing.

“My plans…I’m going to UM for music technology and I’m going to play football,” said Thomas.

So play for the NFL or a career in music production—for Thomas his focus in in both.

“So if I make it to the NFL that would be a blessing for me,” said Thomas. But his love for music remains a strong passion. “I have love for music and took it upon myself to learn and play the instruments I hear in the songs.”

Thomas plays the piano, trombone, euphonium (a small tuba), base guitar, regular guitar, snare, tuba, trumpet and drums.
