Hamilton was active in sports at Fremont St. Joseph's Central Catholic High School, Fremont, Ohio, in the late 1950s. In his sophomore, junior and senior years, he played the halfback position in football, running 21 touchdowns and passing for an additional 20 scores, accounting for 2,300 yards total. Hamilton also lettered in baseball all four years, eventually moving on to pitch no-hit games in the semi-professional Ohio State League. He was also the first-team shortstop on the 1957 All-Ohio Fast Pitch softball tournament team.
