    ISU'S HAMILTON IS BIG 12 COMMUNITY CHAMPION

    IRVING, Texas—The Big 12 Conference, in conjunction with Chick-Fil-A has named Iowa State wide receiver Marquis Hamilton to its Fall Community of Champions. During the fall, winter and spring terms, one student-athlete from each institution is honored based on the several criteria.

    Student-athletes on the team must have at least a 3.0 grade-point average and demonstrate involvement with at least one community service program. The program(s) could be a student organization on campus or within the athletics department. The team member also must demonstrate sportsmanship on and off the field.

    “Marquis has been active in our community, has worked hard in the classroom and been great for us on the field,” Iowa State head coach Paul Rhoads said. “He is one of those guys who you just know will be a success when he leaves Iowa State. I have enjoyed being his coach.”

    Hamilton is having a great senior season. He ranks 10th on the all-time ISU charts with 113 career receptions and 1,408 receiving yards. The Oklahoma City native is the Cyclones’ leading receiver this season with 36 receptions for 505 yards and three touchdowns.

    Pretty cool. Hamilton is also one of 3 or 4 players on the team that has already graduated. It's awfully impressive for any student athlete to graduate in less than 5 years, but I think it is even more so with this group of senior football players that have had to go through 3 sets of coaches and could have easily dogged a semester or two feeling sorry for themselves.

    Congrats to another stand up Cyclone athlete. He's been a very surprising bright spot for this years team.

    Great job, Marquis! Unfortunately too often the way an athlete gets noticed outside the sports pages is on the police blotter, so it is a pleasure to see Marquis given some well deserved, positive recognition.

    Wow, I am always impressed when players graduate early (less than 4 or 5 years). What Jack Whitver did was absolutely incredible.

    Hamilton had a lot of time to study when Chizik had him sitting on the bench.


    Gene Smith, 1993-2000. 7 years, 6 NCAA's, 1 bowl game. Revenue sports postseason participation 50%. Good.
    Bruce Vandevelde, 2000-20005. 5 years, 4 bowl games, 2 NCAA's, 2 NIT's. Postseason participation 80%. Better.
    Jamie Pollard, 2005-. 4 years. 1 bowl game, 0 NCAA's, 0 NIT's. Postseason participation: 13%. The next big step.

    My ignore list: splitidentity, tarheelhawk,superdorf, clones_jer. That is all.

    Re: ISU'S HAMILTON IS BIG 12 COMMUNITY CHAMPION

    It is really great to hear about this. I've heard him speak on post game shows and I'm not surprised that he is so accomplished. His post game interviews really reflect a confident and accomplished young man with a bright future.

    Nice work Hamilton - good for that combine resume too!

    He's definitely one of my favorite cyclones on the roster - very consistent player & you never hear anything but good things about him.
