12 Athlete of the Week: Gilmer County QB Ean Hamric


CLARKSBURG, West Virginia – Gilmer County quarterback Ean Hamric told us playing the popular video game, EA Sports’ NCAA Football 14, helped him learn how to play quarterback at a young age.

So I brought Hamric to Clarksburg to give me a taste of how gambling taught him the tricks of the trade.

When asked how playing the video game helped shape his mindset, Hamric said, “It gave me a good visualization of this one. Before, I really didn’t know much about it. But it really helped me understand the basics. Understand the combinations of routes.

Hamric says he got his first taste of football when he was six or seven, but not as a quarterback, but on a right tackle.

He eventually made the switch to QB, and that’s where the video game comes in.

Hamric had previous editions of the popular EA Sports series, but now Hamric and every other football fan has been stuck playing the same game since its release in July 2013.

When asked when the things he saw in the video game started to clear up the things he saw on the grill, Hamric replied, “Probably in college. It really didn’t have much to do with the game, but it certainly helped. I used to have a good idea, but it wasn’t until college that we started to spread like this.
