Catching up with DeCoud

Though football excellence is in his genes, it took an invitation from his high school coach to get Thomas DeCoud to give the sport a try. The grandson of former 49ers All-Pro John Thomas didn't play organized football until high school - seven years later he was picked by the Falcons in third round of the NFL draft. As part of an ongoing series introducing the Falcons' rookie class, DeCoud spoke with Times sports editor Brent Holloway last week about where he grew up, his background in football and his Guitar Hero habit.
