Hall of Honors inducts Miloís own Tony Hamlin

November 12, 2009 - TRC

When one thinks of Milo and Basketball a few names come to mind - and Tony Hamlinís is one of them. Tony's long association with basketball was recognized and honored October 11, 2009 at the Alfond Youth Center in Waterville by the Maine Sports Legendsí Hall of Honors.

Each of the four regions of the state (southern, central, eastern and northern Maine) select honors recipients each year. In its provision of scholarships for outstanding Maine high school scholar-athletes since 1997, Maine Sports Legends has also aided and honored the youth of Maine for twelve years. Annually eight $500 scholarships and two $1,000 scholarships are awarded by the Maine Sports Legendsí Hall of Honors.

Hamlinís coaching career at the high school level and his personal history of being a two sport star resulted in his induction to the Maine Sports Legendsí Hall of Honors, which honors people who have stood out in or have otherwise significantly contributed to their sports. Hamlin is both.

After his years as an outstanding basketball player for the Milo High School Panthers Hamlin continued his basketball career at the University of Maine where he was a two year starter as guard. Hamlin coached basketball at Maine Central Institute, Morse, and South Portland before returning to Milo to coach Milo High Schoolís and Brownville Junction High Schoolís successor, the Penquis Patriots of MSAD 41. Hamlin is also a Maine Basketball Commission member.

Congratulations, Tony, on a well deserved honor.
