    Area players go west as CSU sets sight on Florida recruits

    Colorado State is a long way from Osceola County. So when former Kissimmee standout Gerard Thomas arrived at Fort Collins, there was a natural period of transition.

    "My first few workouts, I was throwing up all over the place," Thomas said. That would be taking home sickness to another level, but such wasn't the case for the cornerback known to teammates as "MoMo."

    No, Thomas was dealing with routine elevation adjustment of going from the sea-level fields of Central Florida to running sprints at 5,000 feet near the Continental Divide. The sophomore conquered the altitude long ago. Now he has a mile-high attitude —a positive one, that is — to match.

    "We're trying to get to a BCS game," he said.

    Some might accuse Thomas of being on a Rocky Mountain high, but there's no question the Rams are a program on the rise in the Mountain West Conference — home to two-time BCS party-crasher Utah — after going 7-6 and beating Fresno State in the New Mexico Bowl. Even casual football fans in Florida may want to take note of what's happening at CSU.
