Thomas shot an even-par 72 and won with a 4-foot birdie on the second hole of the playoff.

Ringgold head coach Slade Queen said he couldn't be more proud of Thomas for "bringing it home for Ringgold."

"I know Brooks is one happy golfer," he said. "You could tell he was excited after he won it. The team was all sitting around watching and cheering him.
Queen said Thomas "loves a challenge," so winning the state in a playoff wasn't a surprise.
"Brooks is a competitor," he said. "He really stepped it up."
