Thompsons to be Featured on SportsCenter Sunday

ESPN's next #SCFeatured segment, to debut on the 10 a.m. ET SportsCenter on Sunday, will tell the story of Albany's Thompson Trio — brothers Miles and Lyle, along with their cousin Ty.

The feature will air several times throughout the day. Alf Jacques, "The Stick Maker of the Iroquois" will narrate the piece. Production of it began in the middle of the season and a camera crew shot Albany's game with Johns Hopkins and spent time with the Thompsons on campus at Albany, and three days with Miles, Lyle and family on the Onondaga reservation outside Syracuse, according to producer Christopher Bloxom.

All three have said they want to return to the reservation after graduating college. Lyle, who just wrapped up his junior season, has another season to play at Albany and Miles will return as a volunteer assistant coach for the Great Danes.
