Head Coach Tim Corbin on Hamilton: “RJ is one of the better athletes that we have brought into our program. He excelled in football and baseball in high school, and those abilities are visual in his game. He injured himself in the last game this summer and that will sideline him for the majority of the season. He will make his mark in this program…as a player and leader!”
