Logan Thomas came to Virginia Tech back in 2009 as a four-star athlete. The expectation for Thomas was he would play tight end at Virginia Tech after playing quarterback in high school.
Things didn’t go as planned and the Hokies turned to Thomas to back up Tyrod Taylor before taking over in 2011 and starting for the Hokies for three years.
All Thomas did was rewrite Virginia Tech’s record book. He is the school’s all-time leader in passes attempted, completions, yards and touchdown passes.
Despite his success under center in Blacksburg, he wasn’t selected until the fourth round of the 2014 NFL Draft by the Arizona Cardinals. He spent just one season in Arizona before bouncing around for the next couple of seasons before eventually finding a home with the Buffalo Bills in 2016.
At tight end.
Thomas spent parts of three seasons with Buffalo and 2019 with Detroit. He received his biggest break in the NFL this offseason when he signed a two-year deal with the Washington Football Team to serve as the starting tight end.

In his debut for Washington, Thomas certainly did not disappoint.
The former Hokie caught four passes for 37 yards and a touchdown. He was a nice safety valve for young quarterback Dwayne Haskins and could be in store for his best NFL season yet.
It’s nice to see the former Hokie having the success he deserves at the NFL level.
