Ferriday senior Aron Thomas is the latest in the long line of outstanding Trojan quarterbacks. And he’s proud to be there.

&uot;I’ve heard all kind of stories about past Ferriday quarterbacks and I’m glad to be a part of it.&uot;

Thomas left a story of his own last Friday, passing for 275 yards (14 of 20) and two touchdowns in the Trojans’ 32-18 win over Northeast High of Zachary, La. For his performance, he is The Natchez Democrat Player of the Week.
