Hayward star picks Bulldogs

DSC_7046

A Hayward football star announced his college destination Saturday afternoon.

Senior cornerback Alzillion Hamilton committed to Fresno State, joining first-year head coach Kalen DeBoer after Jeff Tedford’s successful three-year stretch there featured a combined 26-14 record – including a 10-win mark in 2017 and a 12-win campaign in 2018.

Hamilton, tabbed as a three-star prospect by 247Sports and the No. 145 cornerback nationally in the 2021 class, picked Fresno State over a slew of Mountain West offers from Nevada, New Mexico, San Diego State, San Jose State and Wyoming.

Hayward recorded a 10-2 campaign overall – its most wins since a 12-2 season in 2006 – while going a perfect 6-0 in league play to capture a West Alameda County Shoreline Division crown. Hamilton was an integral part of that success, leading the team in both receiving yards and interceptions.

Hamilton joins a talented crop of East Bay players at Fresno State that includes two quarterbacks – Jake Haener (Monte Vista) and Ben Wooldridge (Foothill) – along with former Freedom running back Ronnie Rivers, among others.
