Thurman Thomas is an NFL Hall of Fame Running Back, who played most of his career for the Buffalo Bills. Along with Jim Kelly and Andre Reed, Thurman was an integral part of the illustrious “K-Gun” offense that led the Bills to four straight Super Bowl appearances. He led the AFC in rushing in 1990, 1991 and 1993 and was also named NFL MVP in 1991. In his MVP season Thurman became only the eleventh player in the history of the league to surpass 2,000 total yards from scrimmage. Thurman holds the Buffalo Bills all-time rushing record, and is the only player in NFL history to lead the league in total yards from scrimmage for four consecutive seasons.
Thurman played collegiately at Oklahoma State University, where he was a two-time first team All-American in 1985 and 1987. In his senior season he was a Heisman trophy finalist and led the Cowboys to a Sun Bowl victory over West Virginia with 157 yards rushing and four touchdowns. Thurman left Oklahoma State as the school’s all-time leading rusher and his number 34 is one of only three retired numbers at Oklahoma State. Thurman is also a member of the College Football Hall of Fame.
Following his playing career Thurman remained in Buffalo where he hosts a television show about the Buffalo Bills. He also successfully launched Thurman Thomas Sports Training and the Thurman Thomas Energy Group. His energy group is sponsored with three other energy companies to help bring them the lowest prices from suppliers and engage them in demand response programs. Thurman is also a member of the NFL Play 60 program through which he speaks to students regularly about the importance of exercising and eating healthy.
