Dymonte Thomas gets the chance to play at home
The Denver Broncos take the field on August 1st in the annual Hall of Fame game. For Dymonte Thomas, the game will mean a lot more to him.
The Denver Broncos face off against the Atlanta Falcons in the annual Hall of Fame game in August. Both teams will play in the first preseason game of the NFL’s 100th season. For Broncos safety Dymonte Thomas, this preseason game will have a little more meaning to him.
Talking on The Mission Podcast, Dymonte Thomas had the chance to chat about the offseason moves the Denver Broncos have made in the last month or two. When the Broncos make the trip to Canton, Ohio, the game will be played in Dymonte Thomas’ backyard.
"“Yeah, I am very excited to be playing in the Hall of Fame game. Especially since the last time I played there, we lost in the final four. I get to go back and redeem myself. Everyone at home is excited and saying we are buying tickets. Ever since my dad heard the rumor that we might be playing in the game he kept texting me do you know yet, do you know yet? When he finally heard, he was so excited. He is a big fan and he is so excited that the whole family is going to be able to come and watch me play.”"
Dymonte Thomas played high school football at Alliance, Ohio’s Marlington High School, which is about 15-20 minutes away from Tom Benson Hall of Fame Stadium. A definite homecoming for Thomas.
He will look to make some noise on the Denver Broncos roster. Last season, he was able to record his first career interception when he picked off Baker Mayfield late last season.
It could be a great chance for him to step up. With Darian Stewart being released by the Denver Broncos early in the offseason, he could step up and become a huge playmaker.
I believe that he can make an impact for the 2019 season. With Vic Fangio as the head coach, anything is possible for all defensive players. Hoping that Dymonte Thomas enjoys playing in front of his hometown in August.
