by Erie Express Media

The Erie Express are happy to announce the return of All-Pro DL-Charlie Hamilton (Mercyhurst University) for the 2021 season. Charlie begins his second season with the Express and is a returning starter on the defensive line. 

In his first season as a member of the Express, Charlie's play had an immediate impact on our team and helped pave the way to a third straight conference final appearance. Hamilton racked up 48 tackles, 24 tackles for loss (-144 yards) and 12 sacks. Charlie led the GDFL in sacks for the regular season with 8 and the team with 12. For his efforts Charlie was awarded with GDFL All-Pro honors for the 2019 season. 

Hamilton is a graduate of Mentor High School in Mentor, OH. While there he was a standout on the football and basketball teams. Charlie played his college ball at Edinboro University and won a National Championship Bowl Game playing for the WPA Wildcatz in 2017. 

"Charlie made an immediate impact on our defense last season. He has great quickness and demands a double team almost every play. His commitment to the team and unselfishness as a player are qualities that really allow him to shine. We love what he brings to the team and are blessed to have him back. We are expecting another All-Pro caliber season from Charlie in 2021" -Director of Operations Paul Pennington.
