PROFESSIONAL CAREER Place Kicker, Scott Thomsen, has played for a handful of semi-pro and pro teams, primarily in the Northern Utah circuit - both indoors and outdoors. For the 2011 season, he has resigned with the Wenatchee Valley Venom, now an IFL (Indoor Football League) club (formally AIFA). In 2010, he spent a partial season playing in Washington state for the Wenatchee Valley Venom of the AIFA (American Indoor Football Association) where he quickly gained a fan base and became known for his strong leg and consistent touchbacks or "unos". (In the AIFA, a touchback is worth one point. The ball is kicked off from the endzone, through the uprights [into a net], which is a 60+ yard distance.) Though, he didn't play a full season, he made a huge contribution to the team and he tied the record of 24 unos in just half a season. In 2009, Thomsen played for the Utah Valley Thunder of the AIFA, where he kicked 54 extra-points and six field goals. He kicked a 43-yard field goal with one second in regulation to send the game into overtime against Utah rival, Ogden Knights. His extra-point later proved to be the game winner in a 70-69 win. He also kicked several onside kicks throughout the season, which led to many recoveries for the Utah Valley Thunder. They ended the season with an 11-4 record in their premier season in the AIFA.

COLLEGE CAREER Thomsen redshirted his first year (1995) at Snow Jr. College (UT), then took a year off to focus on his studies. He returned the following year (1997) where he had a solid season, leading to his recruitment to Northeastern State, OK (Tahlequah, OK). In 1998 he covered the kickoff and field goal duties at NE State, recording 10 touchbacks and 7-9 field goals.

HIGH SCHOOL CAREER A 1995 graduate of Alta High School (UT), Thomsen played his Junior and Senior years as a premier kicker and earned the nickname “Goldentoe Thomsen”. Prior to moving to Utah, he played Varsity football as a Freshman and Sophomore at Northwest High (Roanoke, TX). He was the first kicker to attempt and make a field goal in 3 years, as the coach was not a believer in kickers.

PREP In 2001, Thomsen moved to Modesto, CA to train with well-known and respected coach, Paul Assad. He gained a better knowledge of his kicking game and honed his skills. He was able to learn a lot from Assad as well as from other trainees, such as James Tuthill, Sebastian Janikowski, and J.R. Jenkins.

PERSONAL Born Scott Brady Thomsen on November 25, 1976 (Thanksgiving Day) in Salt Lake City, UT to parents Elvin Thomsen and Patti Finch.  Married his #1 supporter, Kelli Thomsen in 2001…their honeymoon consisted of their move to Modesto to train for a football career. They later welcomed two sons and just recently their first daughter. He enjoys playing golf and soccer in his free time, is a sucker for sports movies, and his favorite football personality is Brett Favre.
