The Football Canada Coaches Association (FCCA) is pleased to announce that PRO FOOTBALL HALL OF FAME running back THURMAN THOMAS will be speaking at the 2013 convention. The 2013 FCCA Convention will take place over 2 days, March 23rd and 24th, at Corpus Christi Secondary School in Burlington, Ontario.
The legendary running back spent 13 seasons in the NFL, the majority (12) with the Buffalo Bills. Thomas played a huge role in an offense that included Jim Kelly and Andre Reed which led the Bills to four consecutive Super Bowl appearances (1990-93).
Thomas was the AFC rushing leader in 1990, 1991, and 1993. In the first three seasons of this career, Thomas had a total of 12 games with at least 100 yards rushing.
He was selected to 5 straight Pro Bowls from 1989–1993, and was named the NFL’s Most Valuable Player in 1991, after becoming the 11th player in NFL history to finish a season with over 2,000 all-purpose yards. He reached the 2,000-yard total again the following season which marked a record fourth straight season of leading the NFL in yards from scrimmage.
Thomas retired in 2000 as the 9th ranked rusher in NFL history with 12,074 yards. He was enshrined into the Pro Football Hall of Fame as a member of the class of 2007.
