It was a bag of surprises for her as she never underwent any sort of treatment, she never gave up on her belief that her body could heal up her wounds naturally. That was how, Earl Thomas came to be on the 7th of May in 1989, taking a better guess, Earl’s father; Earl Snr. couldn’t hide his joy.
Earl Thomas was raised as a responsible child in Orange town. His mom prefers calling him her ‘miracle child’ than his name. He was showered with all kinds of love and parental care and by the time he was of age, he started showing his interest in the game of football. His father noticed his passion and helped him walk his way into developing a strong career foundation. In Earl’s words, he said he had gathered more skills as a footballer through experiences and practices. With the kind of support he had from his parents, he was noted as one of the best in sports and academics during his days at West Orange-Stark High School.
Upon leaving the high school he was rated as a four-star recruit and was acknowledged as the best athlete in his class. He joined the University of Texas football team, proved to be priceless with the team and by the end of his collegiate career, his top form had spread abroad. His head kept swelling with the remarks he got from his coach and fans, so he publicly declared his intentions of joining the National Football League (NFL) despite not having graduated from the college.
That same year the miracle child made his intents known, he pulled a lot of athletic stints during the NFL Scouting Combine organized in Indianapolis. Thomas performed most of the drills and every single task given to him. With that, the Seattle Seahawks picked him in the first round of the 2010 NFL draft. He was one of the youngest players drafted that year and was also the second safety chosen in that year’s draft.
