Hamilton writing his own ticket

Woodrow Hamilton is trying to make up for lost time.

The 6-foot-3, 265-pound defensive tackle missed extended days in school last year after the loss of both of his grandparents and is now at a new school trying to get his grades in line to play Division-I football.

"To be perfectly honest everything is good," Hamilton said. "I'm ready to go to a couple more camps and do good at them to try to better myself at everything. I'm fixing to take the ACT on Saturday Lord willing. I'm trying to do everything possible to help me go straight to a university so that I can try to write my ticket for life."

Hamilton spent last season playing for Magee but has since transferred to Raleigh where he went through spring practice and will suit up for his senior year.

Hamilton is still awaiting his first scholarship offer but already has a top three list in mind. He named Ole Miss, Mississippi State and UAB as the top contenders for his services but one school stands out the most.

"As far as my likes, it's really between Ole Miss and Mississippi State," Hamilton said. "I'm liking Ole Miss a lot more because I really haven't been to Mississippi State but I still haven't chosen."

Hamilton attended camp at Ole Miss this past weekend and hopes to camp at MSU next week so that he can compare and contrast between the instate rivals.
