Cairo quarterback hard to stop

THOMASVILLE — A small but elusive quarterback, Donald Thomas is dynamic in the open field.

The Cairo senior has also proven to be just as effective this year throwing the ball.

Cairo was held to 37 passing yards in last week's Class AAAA first-round playoff win over Riverdale, but Thomas made several nice throws in key points in the game. Thomas connected with Reese Wooten on a 15-yard pass play to account for the game's first score. Thomas later displayed his arm strength on a two-point conversion try. After Cairo scored to take a 19-7 lead, the Syrupmakers elected to go for two. Thomas rolled to his left, along with most of the Cairo offense and the Riverdale defense. Deonta Dismuke slipped into the open on the opposite side of the field with no defenders around him. Thomas stopped, planted his foot and fired a strike across his body for a successful conversion.

“I think that's probably the part that everybody understimates on him,” Cairo coach Tom Fallaw said. “I think everybody thinks that he's a small kid that can just run. Probably the best part of him is that he might be one of the best throwers we've had. He throws routes on time as good as anybody we've had. He really does a good job of leading our team.”
