recruitNoVA Fab 30: Miles Thompson of the Flint Hill School is #28
by Andy Hilton, recruitNoVA
Miles Thompson arrived at Flint Hill School prior to his junior season. He had played behind Lindell Stone at Woodberry Forest. When he came to Flint Hill, the keys to the offense were handed to him. Since that time, the Huskies are undefeated. They won their way to a VISAA Division I State Championship, led by Thompson.
Heading into the regular season, we recognize the top 30 senior prospects in all of Northern Virginia. That’s a tall task, considering that we track the talent at 86 high school programs in the region. Kicking off our countdown as the 28th best senior prospect region-wide is Flint Hill School quarterback Miles Thompson.
#28 Miles Thompson (2019 QB 5-11 165) – Flint Hill School
Miles Thompson shined in 2017. In 2018, he has continued to develop. Thompson was selected to compete for Elite 11 status as a part of the Nike Opening Regionals. He trains with his Dad, Quarterback Coach Barry Thompson.
Thompson currently holds offers from Howard, Army, Davidson and Georgetown. The Howard offer came in before Miles ever threw a pass for Flint Hill. Mike London and his coaching staff at Howard obviously knew that they should expect big things from Thompson. The excellent thing for Miles is that the weight of the Husky offense is not entirely on his shoulders. Tailback Jordan Houston, who just narrowed his offer list, carried the ball for 1,971 yards on 166 carries, and he tallied 11 catches for an unprecedented 38-yard average.
In the 2017 season, across 11 games, Thompson was 84 for 127 passing for 1,792 yards and 31 touchdowns.
Considering that their one-two offensive punch of Thompson and Houston return in 2018, Flint Hill has a lot to be excited about.
