Giants' safety Darian Thompson to headline April 15 Father-Son Breakfast
Second year safety Darian Thompson of the New York Giants will meet and great our Gaels and dads during the annual Father-Son Breakfast at the Upper School on Sunday, April 15. The day begins with Mass at 9:30 in the Tully Gymnasium, followed by a breakfast and keynote, all sponsored by the Lower School Fathers' Club.
Thompson was selected out of Boise State as the 71st pick overall in the third round of the 2016 NFL Draft. While his rookie season was cut short two games into the season by a foot injury, he took over as the starting free safety in 2017, recording 75 tackles (61 solos and 14 assists) and intercepting one pass.
He was a two-time All-Mountain West first-team selection at Boise State, setting the conference record with 19 interceptions, and was a semifinalist for the Jim Thorpe Award, given annually to the top defensive back in football.
Off the field, he has served lunch with fellow rookies at Eva's Village in Paterson, N.J., for Thanksgiving, as well as attended galas for The MDA Muscle Team (fundraising for treatments and cures for muscle diseases) and the United Way.
The annual Father-Son breakfast is open to fathers, grandfathers, uncles and all male relatives of our Gaels, alumni included. There are also sponsorship opportunities still available, ranging from $100 to $1,500.
