Football: Timberline graduate Ronnie Hamlin earns FCS preseason second-team All-America honor

Former Timberline High standout and Eastern Washington linebacker Ronnie Hamlin was named to The Sports Network's preseason FCS All-America team as a second-team honoree, announced Sunday.

Hamlin, a 2009 Timberline graduate, was granted a sixth year of eligibility in March after his '09 and '10 seasons were wipped out because of knee injuries. Hamlin already is the third-leading tackler in program history.

Since 2010, Hamlin has racked up 361 tackles in 40 games. In 2013, he registered 140 tackles, fourth-best in program history for a single-season.
