Brett Thompson began playing rugby at the age of 14 after growing up around the game in Tempe, AZ. Thompson is a multi-sport athlete who also played lacrosse in High School and middle school; as well as Division I American Football for his first two years at the University of Arizona.

In American Football he won All-State and All-City honors and broke the record for sacks at his high school. Thompson's transition to rugby yielded similar success as he was selected for multiple All-American assemblies with USA Rugby. Among them are a 2008 tour to England with the High School All-Americans, 2009 U20 World Rugby Trophy appearances (15s) and 2011 Collegiate All-American 7s in Canada.

Thompson made his national team debut with the Eagles Sevens at the HSBC Sydney Sevens in 2012 and also earned his first cap in 15s against rival-Canada in June of 2014.

As an Eagle, Thompson has played in three Rugby World Cups across sevens (2013, 2018) and fifteens (2015).

Anchorman is one of his favorite movies and he loved watching Brett Favre compete.
