Centerville grad Hamilton in midst of rapid rise at Wright State


DAYTON -- Before his sophomore year of high school Quincy Hamilton moved from New Mexico to Centerville because his parents who were both in the Air Force were being transferred to Wright Patterson Air Force Base.

A football, basketball and baseball standout most of his life Hamilton decided to focus on the latter when he got to Centerville.

As a sophomore Hamilton played on the junior varsity team then as a junior, by his own admission, had a disappointing season playing for the varsity team.

Things quickly changed from there.

Hamilton went to work and as a senior became a standout for the Elks and earned a scholarship to Wright State like he had hoped for all along.

Then before he stepped on campus he got even better.

Initially there was a tug of war among the coaches if Hamilton would pitch or hit but with the progress that Hamilton made over his redshirt season there was little doubt that he belong in the outfield and focus on offense.

Now the redshirt freshman is fifth on the team in on base percentage and flashes his ability to be an everyday player should the opportunity arise.

It's clear Quincy Hamilton is a name to know for Raiders fans.
