Thompson had quite an experience in his first university season as the Thunderbirds advanced all the way to the JuCo World Series. The outfielder for Great Britain was then selected for the MLB Elite Camp in his home country and threw out one of the ceremonial first pitches in the second game of the London Series.
Thompson had an excellent season on the field, playing in 22 games, though he did not receive an at bat after April 18, missing the final six weeks of the season. Thompson will not soon forget March 8, in which he ripped his first collegiate home run in the second game of a doubleheader against El Paso Community College, also collecting a single, a walk, and his first steal. It was one of five two-hit games, with a pair coming in a twinbill against Luna Community College on March 30.
NMJC faced two other regional colleges that feature Europeans, with Thompson facing Odessa College, which features Andretta, Cihlar, and Monello on March 26, going 1-for-5. None of the Wranglers' Europeans played in the 20-15 win for New Mexico. In the reverse on April 27, Thompson served as a defensive replacement, while Monello went 1-for-3 with a double. On April 18, Thompson was 0-for-1 against Clarendon college, while France's Maël Zan was 2-for-3.
Thompson slashed .333/.467/.521 for the season, the first and last figures slightly below average on for the slugging Thunderbirds. Still, 10 walks in 60 plate appearances is an excellent showing for a first-year player, even with 15 strikeouts. Thompson will return for a second season to the Top JuCo and attempt to top 2019's incredible feats.
