SS PODCAST: NFL Pro Bowler Michael Thomas discusses football, faith & grief

THIS IS THE SPORTS SPECTRUM PODCAST

Michael Thomas has played eight seasons in the NFL with the Houston Texans, New York Giants, Miami Dolphins and San Francisco 49ers. He played his college football at Stanford and went undrafted in 2012. After a stint on the practice squad with the Niners, he made his NFL debut in December 2013 with the Miami Dolphins against the New England Patriots, and intercepted a Tom Brady pass in that game.

Thomas went on to establish himself as a mainstay on special teams, and in 2018 was named to the NFL’s Pro Bowl. He was also named an All-Pro three times as a special teams ace by Pro Football Focus, which also named him to its 2010 All-Decade Team.

Off the field, Thomas earned his master’s degree in business administration from the University of Miami business school, and in 2016 was named the Good Guy Award winner by the Pro Football Writer’s Association for his work assisting and cooperating with the media.

Today on the podcast, Thomas shares how his life has changed since welcoming his third child, his recovery from a torn pectoral in 2020, how Christ became Lord of his life, leaning on his faith after losing his mother and sister, and why it is so important for him to be more than an athlete.
