    ISU Football: New lineman had tough decision
    THE AMES TRIBUNE


    AMES, Iowa Hayworth Hicks didn't want to come to Iowa State.

    On his official visit in May, Hicks looked for anything negative that would persuade him to stay in California. His family's house was under foreclosure. He thought about giving up football and getting a job to help his father, Robert Hicks, pay the family bills.

    But then he met coach Gene Chizik, and his plans went out the window. Chizik sold Hicks on playing at Iowa State. Hicks committed before his visit ended.

    So in June, the 6-foot-3, 323-pound sophomore offensive tackle boarded a plane and flew more than 1,600 miles from home to get a head start on the 2008 football season while ignoring the thoughts of abandoning his family that swirled through his head.

    Wow! That is an extremely tough situation. He sounds like a solid individual and I really hope he works hard and earns an NFL position or gets a good degree to help out his family. He just became one of my favorite players!

    Oh man, I hope the NCAA doesn't read this:

    It wasn't unusual for one of the three boys to get paid under the table to avoid paying taxes.
