Talented: Chad Thomas, 18, maintains a 3.3. grade point average at Booker T. Washington High School and is an All-American athlete, despite the fact he only started playing football at the age of 12


The teenage sensation, who also helped his school football team to a national title and back-to-back state championships, was only three years old when he developed a passion for music, after his grandmother played him gospel music.

He then picked up a guitar as a toddler and was signed up for piano lessons when he was just five.

Before becoming a football star, Thomas had to persuade his parents to let him play because he suffered from asthma and a slight heart murmur.

Thomas' football coach Tim Harris told the paper: 'I thought he was full of it when he told me he played all these instruments. Then he started playing them in front of me ... I was impressed.'

He has been touted as the third best defensive end in the country and is so passionate about football, he normally cries before a game.

When he was seven, his grandmother died, and he was forced to look after himself because his parents were constantly working.

'I just took it upon myself to learn how to play the instruments that I hear in the songs', he said.

When Thomas is not studying, he is performing his own tracks at clubs and at parties.

One of his songs he produced with local musician Lil Dred has been downloaded 245,000 times on SoundCloud.

He has been under the media spotlight this week, after signing a national letter of intent for the University of Miami where he is set to play next year. Thomas was offered a scholarship for both music and football.

The teenage sensation added: 'It’s always been in my mind to go to school there.

'Football is not for long. I can go down with a knee injury tomorrow, but I know I’ll always be able to move my fingers and play an instrument, click a mouse.'
