After a stellar sophomore campaign at Los Angeles public school power Dorsey, Thibodeaux transferred north of the city to Oaks Christian, a power in its own right that has sent nearly a dozen alumni to the NFL since opening in 2000, including former USA TODAY Offensive Player of the Year Jimmy Clausen.
The 6-foot-5, 230-pound pass-rushing virtuoso was virtually unblockable off the edge, racking up 20 sacks, 44 hurries and 28 total tackles for loss over 15 games. He also defended six passes and forced three fumbles, recovering two which was enough to land him on the 2017-18 American Family Insurance ALL-USA Defensive Second Team as a junior.
