Thomas reflects on MSU career

Mississippi State senior guard Fred Thomas talks about his basketball journey over the past four years and its highs and lows. Thomas is one of six Bulldog seniors that will be honored prior to Saturday’s game against Auburn.

On looking back on past four years…

“It’s been bad, but good for the most part. It’s been bad because of the three coaches I had throughout my career. For the most part it’s been good.”

On taking the court for the final time…

“I think it’s going to be pretty emotional. I’m going to try to make the best of it this Saturday playing in The Hump for the last time.”

On ever thinking about leaving…

“I never thought about leaving. This was where I always wanted to be.”

On building a solid foundation with the younger players…

“I think those guys are going to be great for Mississippi State in the future. Those guys are coachable and understand what is going on. They know how to play the game of basketball very well.”

I have covered Mississippi State in some capacity since 2004 and joined the Daily Journal staff in 2013. I enjoy short walks on the beach, performing concerts in my car and watching professional wrestling.
