FREMONT, Neb. – The Midland University men’s bowling team has announced the signing of Donovan Thomas. The 2016 Colorado Youth State Champion will join the Warriors next fall.
“Donovan is a great young man as well as a very skilled bowler,” said head coach Bill Hollbrock. “He brings versatility and solid fundamentals to the lane. He is very coachable and loves to put in the work necessary to bring out the best in himself. Donovan has been competing at a high level for some time including solid appearances in Teen Masters and Team USA trials. The college game should be a quick transition for him and he should have an opportunity to contribute to this team right away.”
Thomas has six career 300 games, rolling his first in the 2015 Teen Masters which was nationally televised. He finished 11th at the tournament. Thomas also has five Mile Hi Tour titles and one Colorado scratch title.
Donovan was joined at the signing by his parents, Sandy and Richard, along with some of his future Warrior teammates.
"I choose Midland University because of the small-school feel which was close to the same size as my high school,” Miller said. “The Warrior bowling team is very talented and are a threat to win every tournament they appear in which is excited to be a part of.”
