Class of 2020 guard Jacques Thomas of Rockwood Summit is a high-flying performer who is poised to have a big senior year for the Falcons.

The 6'4" Thomas has put in a lot of work in the offseason to improve his overall game, but one part that did not need a lot of improvement was his athleticism and ability to make explosive plays at the basket. He is quite capable of making highlight reel plays with swooping dunks and slashing drives to the basket.

"When I dunk, it really gets everyone into the game," he said. "It gets my teammates hyped up and even more focused on the game."

Thomas has attracted collegiate interest from St. Louis area schools such as Lindenwood, Maryville and Missouri Baptist. He has a big upside with his athleticism and ability to attack the basket and score at the rim. He is also an excellent rebounder with the ability to be a lock-down defender on the wing. His offensive game has continued to improve over the course of the summer.
