High school senior gets 150 scholarship offers

Posted: Updated:
Miami, FL -

When a student receives one or two scholarships, that's reason to celebrate. But 150!

Chad Thomas, 18, and a senior at Booker T. Washington High School in Miami, is a man of many talents.

He received 150 scholarships offers partly for his football skills and his many musical abilities - he plays 9 instruments.

In addition to the piano and trombone, he plays the tuba, a small tuba called the euphonium, guitar, bass guitar, snare, trumpet and drums.

And the winner is - the University of Miami. He will play football and will play football as a Hurricane, and also practice his musical talents at the University's Frost School of Music.

Thomas helped lead the Booker T. Tornadoes to back-to-back state championships and win a national title this season. As far as his love for music, he says fell in love with music when he was three-years-old listening to his late grandmother's gospel CDs.
