2020 Walter Payton Man of the Year Nominee

A Houston native, Michael Thomas has always been on the forefront of making the community around him a better place en route to his Walter Payton Man of the Year nomination. Thomas has focused on social justice issues and his approach has been two-fold, centering on advocacy and education while driving legislative change. In 2020, he created the unique design of the NFLPA's "END RACISM" pre-game warm-ups, organized a Texans players-only video calling for social justice reform and generated over $17,000 for HBCU scholarship funds by auctioning off special game memorabilia. Lastly, his annual free football camp, "Camp Mike T", is reflective of Thomas' dedication to empower young Houstonians while providing them with the additional resources to become impactful citizens in today's society.
