When Baker opens training camp for the 2014 Greater Oregon League football season it will be without senior quarterback Thomas Hamilton.

The 6-foot-3 Hamilton has transferred to Class 6A Oregon City.

A story in The Oregonian and on www.oregonlive.com said Hamilton will move to Oregon City this week and jump into the mix for the Pioneers' starting quarterback position.

The story said Hamilton began thinking of transferring during the spring, then visited Oregon City in June.

He notified Baker coach Dave Johnson of his decision last Tuesday.

Hamilton completed 146 of 241 passes for 1,470 yards and a dozen touchdowns last season.
