Gopher Football Player Cedric Thompson

Junior safety Cedric Thompson was featured in the Star Tribune on Sunday, July 7. It brought a tear to every Gopher fans eyes.

The article was written by Gopher beat writer Joe Christensen and took the readers through Thompson's life journey from Compton, Calif., to Bombay Beach, Calif., to Minneapolis to play for the Gophers. Cedric Thompson has taken a different route to the classrooms compared to his high school classmates from Compton.  Thompson has now realized that living in a small, suffering town has given him drive to be the best he can be in the classroom and on the field. Thanks so much for your effort, Cedric! We love watching you on the field. Keep doing what you're doing.
