Tommy Thompson finished high school at Granite Bay in just 3 years, helped Indiana capture the Big 10 Tournament Title in his one season in Bloomington, then headed back to the Bay to make his MLS debut with the Earthquakes at just 18 years of age. With his seventh professional season postponed indefinitely, the Loomis native is using the unexpected break to share the drills that helped him reach the pros and inspiring thousands along the way. Tommy joins Kate Scott to discuss his inspiration for the videos, his piano playing, how his new coach inspired him to learn Spanish, and why he’s so excited for the future in San Jose.
