Mike Thompson Hired as New Fatima Athletic Director and Assistant Principal

After four years of guiding the Fayette football team, Mike Thompson is moving on to an administrative position. Thompson will serve as the athletic director and assistant principal at Fatima next school year. Thompson says a number of factors played into the move.

Thompson previously served as an athletic director for three years at Lathrop in northwest Missouri. He says he’s learned some valuable lessons over the years.

The Falcons went 6-5 this past season under Thompson and 29-16 during his four-year tenure. Thompson says it was difficult to part with this group of players.

With an enrollment of 323 students Fatima is one of the largest schools in the state without a football team.
