Given his scatback size, it’s easy to underestimate Bailey Hicks’ physicality. But those who sell the Wylie senior short are liable to get themselves trucked or taken for a ride.
Listed on the Wylie roster at 5-foot-8 and 175 pounds, Hicks isn’t a big back by any means. But he’s not afraid of contact either.
Thus far, his straight-ahead, one-cut running style has him averaging more than 100 yards per game and ranked in the top 20 among Big Country backs in rushing yardage. And with the faith his coaching staff has in him, both trends could continue a while.
