Born to Mathew and Mary Thomas in Pulaski, Virginia, Thomas grew up in Perth Amboy, New Jersey. While playing for Perth Amboy on December 18, 1925, Thomas was punched during a game against Trenton by opposing player Tommy Barlow. Thomas had his jaw broken, and missed most of the season. In early 1926, he filed a $15,000 law suit against Barlow for his injuries and lost wages.
