Wesley Chapel senior forward Erik Thomas was named the Class 5A Player of the Year by the Florida Dairy Farmers awards association Thursday afternoon.

Thomas now becomes one of the eight individual class finalists for the 2013 Florida Dairy Farmers Mr. Basketball award.

Thomas, a 6-foot-5 prolific scorer, averaged 32.7 points 16.3 rebounds, 3.4 assists and 2.9 steals per game this season while shooting 56 percent from the field for the Wildcats that were bounced from the region quarterfinals by Eustis after winning the Class 5A-District 8 title.

Thomas also broke the 2,000-career-point mark this season thanks to a 35-point game in a 65-62 win over crosstown rival Wiregrass Ranch.
