Hamilton was a huge component to Notre Dame's success this year. He recorded 34 tackles, 19 solo and 15 assisted, as well as three interceptions. The Fighting Irish went 12-1 in the regular season, with their only loss to the Cincinnati Bearcats. Notre Dame finished at the top of the Independent Conference, while the Bearcats finished 13-0 at the top of the American Athletic Conference.

Despite only having three years of college football under his belt, Hamilton is more than qualified for the National Football League's upcoming draft. The Notre Dame junior is 6'4″ and 220 lbs. His stats and his stature speak for themselves.

Notre Dame has been in the media limelight for more than just the success of their football team. Just a couple of weeks ago, head coach Brian Kelly left the team with an Irish goodbye.

Without their star safety, the Fighting Irish will take on Oklahoma State in the Fiesta Bowl on New Year's Day.
