Hamm is ready to make his mark at EAC

After two seasons of bouncing around at different schools, this fall will be Eastern Arizona LB Anthony Hamm's (6-1, 225) first experience of college football. The talented lineman has the Gila Monster coaches excited about what he can do, but until things go live in late August he knows he still has a lot to prove...

Hamm prepped at Mainland High School in Daytona Beach, Florida and signed with Florida A&M, but he was unable to qualify, so he headed to Grand Rapids, but following the 2011 season, the Raiders' program was disbanded and he wound up heading west to get his college football career going.

"I've been happy out here with the stability and the coaches and the players," Hamm told JCFootball.com recently. "This will be my first time playing ball in almost three years, so I'm excited, but I know I have a lot to work on before I'll be ready to go."

Coming into the season, Hamm is projected to play the strongside linebacker spot in the middle of the Gila Monsters' 4-2-5 scheme and he said that suits him just fine.

"Right now I'm definitely better at playing the run than anything, but I've been working a lot on my speed and my footwork," Hamm noted. "I haven't really heard from any schools yet, but I think a lot of that is because I haven't played in two years. I figure with a good year, that I can get some schools to start looking at me."

Hamm is on pace to graduate in May and he will have three years to play two following the 2012 football season.
