Don Hamilton

Donald Munson Hamilton (November 14, 1887 – June 2, 1959) was an American football and baseball player and a football referee.

As a two-year starter at quarterback at the University of Notre Dame, Hamilton amassed a record of 15–1–1. The highlight of the undefeated 1909 season was the school's first victory over Michigan in nine tries—an 11–3 triumph over a very good Fielding H. Yost team that earned Notre Dame the title "Champions of the West".

In 1910, Hamilton's eligibility was suspended for having played professional baseball with the Louisville Colonels, but he returned as a backup quarterback in 1911 and threw the school's first game-winning touchdown pass—a 35-yard strike to Lee Matthews—for a 6–0 victory against Pittsburgh.[1]

After graduation, Hamilton played professionally in the Ohio League, first for the Shelby Blues in 1913,[2] and then for the Canton Professionals/Bulldogs in 1914 and 1915.[3] By the early 1920s, he had become a referee for pro games played in the Ohio Valley, and in 1921 was banned from officiating games for the Ironton Tanks after admitting that he had watched them "more closely" than their opponents.[4]

By the mid-1930s, Hamilton had become a college football referee for the Big Ten Conference.

He was fired as the head coach of the Canton Bulldogs, by manager Jack Cusack, after he benched Canton rookie Jim Thorpe for the first game of the 1915 league title game. The first game in the two-game series resulted in a 16–0 victory over the Bulldogs by their rivals, the Massillon Tigers. It is unknown why Hazlett benched Thorpe. Some historians feel it was due to Thorpe not having time to practice with the team, while others feel that he was resentful of Thorpe's high salary. After Hazlett was fired, the Bulldogs' quarterback, Don Hamilton, left the team in protest. Thorpe was later named the team's new head coach and led the Bulldogs to the 1915 championship, which was split between Canton and Massillon.
