2 Wildecats sign letters

February 04, 1993|By Gary Lambrecht

Craig Butler and Damon Hamlin, each of whom has played a key role in Wilde Lake's storied football tradition, are taking their talents to college.

Butler, a 5-foot-9, 160-pound wide receiver/defensive back who helped the Wildecats win their third consecutive state championship last fall, signed a letter of intent with Kent State University (Ohio) yesterday. Butler, who was an All-County selection last season as a defensive back, played most of the season with a stress fracture in his leg.

Hamlin, who has been attending Fork Union Academy, signed yesterday with Rutgers.

At 5-9, 185 pounds, Hamlin was graduated last year from Wilde Lake after leading the Wildecats to the 1991 state championship.

A running back, Hamlin rushed for 1,250 yards and 24 touchdowns in his senior year. He capped a brilliant season by scoring the winning touchdown with a minute left to lift Wilde Lake to a 13-10 over Smithsburg in the 1A title game.
