CFC100 Arthur Hamlin finally signs with Colgate


It was a big day for CFC100 Arthur Hamlin out of CFC10 St. Joseph’s Football North, who finally tied the knot with Colgate on NCAA Early Signing Day. This will give him a chance to play close to home in the State of New York, and he’ll be joining a program who’ve been on the rise in the FCS Patriot League under the guidance of fifth year Head Coach Dan Hunt. The Raiders won the Patriot League for the second year in a row with a 10-2 overall record this season, and finished ranked top ten before losing to North Dakota State in the FCS Playoffs quarterfinals.

Hamlin is versatile athlete that can play linebacker, defensive back and return kicks at a high efficiency, which earned him a spot on our CFC10 All-Canadian Team last year as a linebacker. The FPC Alumni also spent some time at camps for UConn, Buffalo, Syracuse, Maine, Liberty and Old Dominion, but Colgate were the one program who truly wanted him on campus.


We were able to catch up with Hamlin when he first received his offer from Colgate, and it seems like it was a match made in heaven from day one,

“I originally went down for a camp at Colgate University, one of my coaches introduced me to the coaching staff as he had attended Colgate when he was in university. I had a great camp, talked with my position coaches and they told me I would be hearing good news soon! Within a few weeks I got a call from one of the coaches talking about how they would like to offer me.”

Hamlin is the first Canadian to sign with Colgate since we started tracking back in 2010, and was the only prospect they’ve offered north of the border this cycle.
