    Thomas Rawls Biography

    Last updated: February 10, 2017

    Childhood and High School 

    Born on August 3, 1993 in Flint, Michigan, Thomas Rawls is a graduate of Flint Norther High School, where he was a running back on the school's football team. During his high school football career he ran a total of 1,585 yards and had an average yard per carry exceeding 10. The same season, his senior year, he scored 19 touchdowns. As a unanimous selection for all-state, he also achieved the honor of breaking the school's record, which had previously been set by a winner of the Heisman Trophy. The Flint Journal even named him Player of the Year. Few football players in Michigan were recruited more than Rawls was. 


    While enrolled at the University of Michigan, Rawls expressed his desire to break rushing records set by university alumni Mike Harper, who was his favorite college football player. During his freshman year, Rawls played 10 games for the university and pulled off 73 rushing yards. This contributed to his selection as one of five of the university's players expected to pull off surprising feats for the 2012 football season. Yet in the 2012 and 2013 seasons he was not as active in the games as he could have been. In 2013 he only achieved three carries for the entire season. 

    After a transfer to Central Michigan University he spent his senior year football season playing as part of the school's team. In a September 2014 game Rawls was able to score two touchdowns and 155 yards rushes. He finished the 2014 college football season with 10 touchdowns and 1,103 rushing yards.

The team's first win for the 2015 season was credited to Rawls for achieving 16 carries and rushing 104 yards. This was referred to as his breakout performance and put him in the good graces of the team's head coach. The team as a whole was excited to see what he could do and how much he could improve their game strategy for this season and future seasons. His teammates saw him as a workhouse that would do whatever needed to be done to ensure the team's ongoing success. By the end of the year he had been voted onto the All-Rookie Team for the NFL and PFWA.
