    OWH Article on Stevie Hicks final days

    You really have to feel for the guy. Its too bad he didn't just stay in Ames, I am sure he could have made a fine living.

    That was certainly a depressing read. Sounds like he was lost and didn't know where to turn. It's too bad someone couldn't help him. :(

    Re: OWH Article on Stevie Hicks final days

    Five-star writing as always from the OWH, but wow... that was a very sad article. Painful to read.

    Re: OWH Article on Stevie Hicks final days

    Its so hard to believe how everyone goes their own ways after college, and while everything may have been fine for them in college, you wonder what they are going to when its all over. Seems you lose touch with most of those close to you in college whether you want to or not.
    I hate that this had to happen to Stevie, but he is better off now. RIP 27

    Re: OWH Article on Stevie Hicks final days

    You're absolutely right, 33. While we can't keep in contact with everyone you were close to in college once you all graduate, we can translate that to the people we do see more often. It's so important to really pay attention to those around you; care about them and listen to them, rather than just waiting for your turn to speak. You never know when taking the time to sit down and ask how somebody is doing is going to be exactly what they really needed. This just underscores that even more.

    Re: OWH Article on Stevie Hicks final days

    That was one of the saddest things I have read in a long time. What a horrible ending to someone with so much promise. I think it goes to show that college athelets, especially football and basketball, are not prepared to enter the world after college. They all think the pros are a sure thing. They need a plan B.

    Sad. The worse part is he was asking for help but it wasnt known until all the pieces were put togther and it was too late.

    Re: OWH Article on Stevie Hicks final days

    That one hurts. He made it known what was going on. Ouch. I'm not going to be harsh with his family, because they probably were totally shell-shocked by the entire situation. I can't imagine how they feel at this time.

    There's a good note here that everyone needs somebody they can count on when life gets rough.


    Since we are an elite team now, let's go get that One Cyclone Moment.
    Make this one for the ages!

    SAD story... my last post got deleted for some reason, but really sad story. Wish he could have seen all the things he could done that still involved football. (coach, clinics, etc.)
