A three-time letterman at UVa, Thompson was one of the team's most popular players emotional leaders during his career. He was a team captain of the 2005 squad that reached the final four before falling in overtime to eventual national champion Johns Hopkins.
In 2005 he received the team's Tom Rixey Award for spirit and inspiration. Thompson fought back from a devastating injury early in his career that caused him to take some time away from school. After redshirting in 2001 due to the injury, he scored three goals during his second season in 2002. He was out of school for two years during which time he coached with Hilgartner at Woodberry Forest in 2004 before coming back to UVa in 2005. Last year he returned to Woodberry to work with Caravana.
Thompson, a native of Annapolis, Md., is majoring in anthropology with a minor in drama and is expected to receive his degree this summer.
