Amateur and college

Thomas played as a youth for Hazard United in Jamaica and at The Hotchkiss School in Lakeville, Connecticut. He played college soccer at the University of Connecticut. He played two seasons, 2001 and 2002, and was named an NSCAA second team All-American his sophomore year.

Professional

After that year, Thomas entered the 2003 MLS SuperDraft, where he was selected 10th overall by the Dallas Burn. Thomas struggled in his first year, often appearing raw, but finished the season with 14 starts and 1252 minutes for the Burn. In the offseason, Thomas was traded to the Wizards in exchange for Eric Quill and Carey Talley. In his second year, Thomas established himself as a solid defender, playing center back for one of the league's best defensive teams. He finished the season with 1880 minutes in 22 starts. Thomas continued as a starter in 2005 and 2006. On March 23, 2007, Thomas was traded to the Los Angeles Galaxy for a conditional second-round draft pick. On May 3, 2007, he was traded to Chivas USA for a second-round draft pick in 2009.

Thomas was selected by Philadelphia Union in the 2009 MLS Expansion Draft on November 25, 2009.[1]

International

He appeared for the Jamaican U-20's in the 2001 FIFA World Youth Championship in Argentina and looks poised to break into a major role with the Jamaican national team. He currently has 25 caps, and has represented the team at every youth level.
