Brian Hamilton

 by Lauren Lasky

Player of the WeekBrian Hamilton has been chosen as the Campus Recreation Player of the Week for his outstanding efforts in the men's competitive floor hockey league as a member of Snipe & Celly. Hamilton is a junior wellness management major from Liverpool, N.Y.
This is Hamilton's second semester playing the floor hockey league. However, he is no newcomer to Campus Recreation. Hamilton has played 99 games on 14 teams, with participation in the flag football, dodgeball, basketball, broomball, team handball, and badminton and pickleball leagues.
Hamilton was a huge contributor in Snipe & Celly's game against versus Alaskan Flamethrowers, scoring 4 of the 11 goals made in the shutout game. Although Hamilton was a star player last week, he thanks his teammates for support.
"Our whole team does a good job of coming together and playing through pressure when we're in a slump," he said.
Snipe & Celly finished regular season play in second place and advanced to the finals in the playoffs. Hamilton contributes his team's success to skills gained from experience.
"Most of our team used to play hockey, so we do a good job of moving the ball and finding open shots," he said. "We know the game well too, so that helps."
In the finals, Snipe & Celly did not disappoint. The game went into sudden death and Hamilton, alongside his teammates, were crowned champions of the men's competitive floor hockey league.
Growing up, Hamilton played baseball and hockey for 17 years. He would describe himself as very competitive, but enjoys playing sports and being active.
