That was a rough story to read, so happy that he was able to re-connect with God, great player, solid hitter, had a presence back there.

Great story. Good to know how he has kept his spirits up by walking with the Lord. Hope we all during this season of thanksgiving and celebration never forget to thank God for what He has done and given us. Modern day Job

What a great article. Orlando Thomas was a great player to watch and root for. He played every down like the game depended on it. Wish we had him now~ Take care, Orlando. You will be missed!
