IRVING, Texas - The Big 12 Conference, in conjunction with Chick-Fil-A has named Iowa State wide receiver Marquis Hamilton to its Fall Community of Champions. During the fall, winter and spring terms, one student-athlete from each institution is honored based on the several criteria.

Student-athletes on the team must have at least a 3.0 grade-point average and demonstrate involvement with at least one community service program. The program(s) could be a student organization on campus or within the athletics department. The team member also must demonstrate sportsmanship on and off the field.

“Marquis has been active in our community, has worked hard in the classroom and been great for us on the field,” Iowa State head coach Paul Rhoads said. “He is one of those guys who you just know will be a success when he leaves Iowa State. I have enjoyed being his coach.”

Hamilton is having a great senior season. He ranks 10th on the all-time ISU charts with 113 career receptions and 1,408 receiving yards. The Oklahoma City native is the Cyclones’ leading receiver this season with 36 receptions for 505 yards and three touchdowns.
