Fort Chiswell running back Daniel Hamm has been offered a spot as an invited walk-on at Virginia, Pioneers head coach Stephen James said Thursday.
Hamm ran for 1,902 yards and 26 touchdowns on 215 carries this season as Fort Chiswell finished 11-2 and reached the Group A Division 2 quarterfinals. Hamm also was the Pioneers second-leading tackler.
Hamm was named the Mountain Empire District offensive player of the year. A three-sport star, Hamm won the triple jump in the Group A track and field meet in 2011 and was a starting guard on the Pioneers’ basketball team that reached the Division 2 semifinals last winter.
