Thomson has ability to set up teammates through clean hands and his football IQ is what sets him apart from other young draftees.
Thomson grew up in the country town of Swan Hill where he would be found always outside with his three brothers. If it wasn’t footy, cricket or golf the boys would pick fruit to help the family business. At the age of 16 Thomson made the move to Geelong Grammar to finish his schooling.
After being selected with the 21st pick in the 2019 AFL Draft Thomson showed how quickly he fitted into the club making his debut in round 13 of the 2020 season.
