He was born in 1969, in Elkins WV, son of the late Clinton E. Hamrick Sr, and Nancy C. (Baker) Hamrick. Growing up, Greg developed a deep love of sports. He attended Tygart Valley High School where he was a multi-year letterman in football, baseball, and basketball. In 2004, Greg was inducted into the Randolph County West Virginia Hall of Fame. He attended several colleges to help satisfy his thirst for knowledge. Greg was well studied and could do anything.

In 2009, he was the head coach for the NCC Football League, he coached for the Phantoms Baseball Team, the Delaware Rockets, and Cobra’s Softball- just to name a few.
