A Hamilton institution is ailing

Posted by on October 2, 2012 – 4:59 pm

Longer than any player, (almost) any coach or (almost) any administrator, Greg Eisman has walked the Hamilton sideline – home or road – and took notes every game, every season.

Since the school opened in 1998, Eisman has been there from the start, scribbling down numbers on paper after each play, meticulously keeping nearly every semi-relevant stat known in football (certainly as much as one person can possibly do on a given play). Then sending out packets of information after coaches watch game film the next day.

The ‘stat’ man has recently become ill. Huskies coach Steve Belles said Eisman has had one kidney fail and the other clogged, and it first became an issue during Hamilton’s trip to Ireland in late August.  Eisman’s condition is serious and it’s hard to gauge a clear prognosis moving forward.

All the best for a full and speedy recovery to Eisman, one of the best at what he does and, anonymously, one of the most helpful people in local high school circles.
