Welcome to my site dedicated to Derrick Thomas. DT has been my favorite player since the day he entered the NFL, and he remains so even after his untimely passing. A few years ago, I set out to make a small tribute page devoted to his career. Over time, the site has grown much bigger in size and has now evolved into what you see today. I hope that you enjoy this site as much as I enjoy putting it together! If you have the time, please sign my guestbook and/or e-mail me. I love to hear from other DT fans! I try to update this site on a regular basis so please check back often. Better yet, bookmark it! So please take your time browsing through this site, it’s sure to bring a tear to your eye. Thanks for stopping by!
