The young gladiator from Miami had 68 solo tackles this past season and played his best game in the 23-20 Overtime Loss to Lamar. Thompkins had 15 total tackles in that battle and more impressive was the fact that 13 of those tackles were solo.
Thompkins also had 6 games with double digit tackles in his senior season , not to mention he had 7 games with at least 5 solo tackles. He shared sacks in two games and forced and recovered a fumble in the Delta Devils Loss to eventual SWAC Champs Alcorn State.
