2023 Thompson Youth Football


This is one of the top Football programs in the South.

Alabaster's youth football program is the lifeblood of the Thompson Warrior football dynasty. With four consecutive state championships and one of the best six-year records in the nation, the THS football team is primed for long-term success.

Over the past few years, THS has sent several players to collegiate programs, and there are even Warriors in the NFL.

The youth football players of today have become part of this championship tradition and are on the path of excellence.
Best of luck to those participating in the 2023 Football Program!
