Bryan Hamilton sat surrounded by family, friends, teammates, faculty, and staff at Sneads High School yesterday as he signed to continue his baseball playing days at Enterprise State College.

Bryan has played for the Sneads Pirates for four years and knew he was not ready to hang up his cleats.  His play got the attention of Enterprise State coaches and when they offered him the opportunity to play while continuing his education, it was an offer he couldn’t refuse.  

This year, Bryan Hamilton has played in all six Sneads High games.  He has had 23 plate appearances, 15 at bats, four hits with a .267 batting average, and a .500 on base percentage.  Hamilton has pitched nine innings of baseball this year in three games with one win and no losses.  He has allowed nine hits, three earned runs and struck out 19 batters.   In the preseason game against PK Yonge, he had 15 strikeouts in the game.  

Hamilton was a dual athlete in high school, playing wide receiver and safety on the Pirate football team.

About his decision to sign with Enterprise State, Bryan says it was a good fit, “I had a chance maybe to walk on at Chipola.  I had looked at Jacksonville University but Enterprise offered me a full ride and they have a new coach and I like the program.” 

Coach Laramie Dryden says, “I’m very proud of him.  He is a very hard worker.  He set a goal to earn a scholarship and he worked hard all summer and fall to obtain it.” 

Bryan says of where he is today, “I have to thank my dad.  He’s been there for me.  There were times we didn’t have money for me to play travel ball and he went out of his way to make sure I got an opportunity to play.” 

Hamilton is the son of Jimmy Hamilton and Dixie Williams. He has two sisters, Taylor Hamilton and Isabella Williams, and three step brothers, Hunter, Aiden, and 

Landon Wagner.
