Hero Douglas and Thunder Football Head Coach Robert Smith

Congratulations to Thunder Football student athlete Hero Douglas who recently signed an offer to attend college and play football at the College of St. Scholastica in Duluth, Minnesota!
Hero played WR/DB for the Thunder and graduated from FDLTCC at the end of Fall Semester 2019.
Originally from Austin, Texas, and a graduate of NYOS Charter School, Hero joins the successful CSS Saints Football program and a team that finished 7-3 last season in the UMAC.


I chose FDLTCC because of its size and the curriculum. When I first came here in 2019, I was just looking for what I needed to volunteer, perhaps in a crisis shelter. I met with Don Jarvinen, and the rest is history.

My favorite thing about FDLTCC is the people. I’ve met fantastic students, faculty and staff who go above and beyond what I expected.

It is awesome here at the FDLTCC Education Program because it is like a family here, if you need help or are struggling with anything, you have quite a few people who will help you out.
