A Miami high school senior has been offered 150 college scholarships.

Chad Thomas, 18, received the offers for not just his skills on the football field, but also for his exceptional musical abilities. He plays a total of nine instruments. 

From CBS Miami: 

Of the football and music scholarships offered, Thomas has chosen to attend the University of Miami and will play football as a Hurricane, and also practice his musical talents at the University’s Frost School of Music.

Thomas helped lead the Booker T. Tornadoes to back-to-back state championships and win a national title this season. But it’s not only being on the field that he loves—Thomas says he fell in love with music at the age of three while listening to his late grandmother’s gospel CDS.
