Thomas signs with Ashland

Elyria's Chase Farris wasn’t the only area football player who was patient waiting to sign his letter of intent.

Lorain’s Sherman Thomas also sign his letter of intent to play football at Ashland University after waiting two extra days because of the weather.

The senior defensive back was relieved to make his decision so that he could start concentrating on finishing high school strongly and what classes he’d take next year.

"I was glad to get it over with so I can focus on getting ready for school," Thomas said.

A three-year varsity player, Thomas didn’t realize his goal of playing college football until this season. That was thanks in part to former Lorain coach Todd Auvil emphasizing that he could be a college athlete.

"That’s what he talks about every time I see him he’d say, ‘We’re going to get you into a college,’" Thomas said. "So that definitely helped a lot."
