Son of former USA Rugby Boys High School All-American Head Coach Salty Thompson, Brett Thompson began playing rugby at the age of 12. In college, he played with the University of Arizona football team for two years before switching to rugby full-time.

In 2013 he made his debut in Sevens at the 2013 Gold Coast Sevens tournament before a stint with the Men's National Team saw him earn his first cap against rival-Canada and score his first try in the debut. He also played in the 2013 Rugby World Cup Sevens in Moscow.

He appeared in two of the Men's Eagles' pool matches of Rugby World Cup 2015 before returning to sevens for the 2015-16 HSBC World Sevens Series.
