Burnsville running back selected to play in Minnesota Football Showcase

Burnsville High School senior Tre Thomas, a running back for the Burnsville football team, has been selected to play in the 45th Annual Minnesota Football Showcase on Saturday, Dec. 9 at U.S. Bank Stadium in Minneapolis.

“This is a great honor for Tre to represent the Burnsville football program and community by participating in the Minnesota Football Showcase,” said Vince Varpness, varsity football head coach. “He has worked hard the past few years to put himself into position to become one of the top athletes in Minnesota.”

Varpness added, “Tre is a diverse athlete who has the ability to play offense or defense in college (LB or RB) due to his combination of agility, size and strength. Currently, several colleges are recruiting him from both the DI and DII levels. This is a testament to his character and abilities. We are very excited to see Tre move onto the next level and watch his progress though his college years.”

Developed in partnership between the Minnesota Vikings and the Minnesota Football Coaches Association (MFCA), the Minnesota Football Showcase All-Star football game features outstanding senior players from the current year’s high school football season.

Players and coaches representing 89 schools and nearly 40 sub-districts will participate in this year’s game.
