ALFA Insurance® proudly recognizes Dallas Thomas as the Huntingdon College Student-Athlete of the Week

MONTGOMERY, Ala. – Huntingdon men’s soccer player Dallas Thomas played a key role in two Great South Athletic Conference battles last week.

The senior scored two of the Hawks’ three goals during the week and is tied for second on the team in goals scored this season. Thomas’ performance helped him earn this week’s ALFA Insurance® Student-Athlete of the Week.

“I was very surprised to find out I had been chosen, but it’s an honor to be recognized,” said Thomas, who is majoring in Chemistry with a Minor in Religion.

Thomas scored one goal in a 2-0 win over LaGrange to help Huntingdon earn its first GSAC win of the season. In a 2-1 loss to Piedmont, the Wetumpka native scored the Hawks’ goal. Thomas and the Hawks close out the regular season at Covenant on Saturday before traveling to LaGrange, Ga., for the GSAC tournament on Nov. 4.

 “We started the season off slow, but we’ve been playing better at the end,” Thomas said. “We’ve picked up our game and we’re being more competitive in all of our matches, but especially our conference matches.”

 ALFA is pleased to recognize Thomas and all Huntingdon student-athletes for their hard work and accomplishments throughout the 2011-2012 season.
