PLAYER: Faion Hicks
SCHOOL: Pembroke Pines Flanagan
SCOUTING: Ask any coach who has been around this talented young man the past decade – in youth football and in high school – and all will tell you this is easily one of the most overlooked big-time prospects in South Florida. From the beginning, when he was at University School to his big contributions on last year’s Flanagan team that won the Class 8A state championship, Hicks is a quality talent who can line up at five different positions, and help you at all of them. He has tremendous speed and an unmatched work-ethic that has thrust him into the spotlight – with colleges from across the nation keeping an eye on his progress. He is certainly the kind of football player who will get it done at just about any arena and against all levels of competition. Hicks is one of these impressive football players that other athletes always have positive things to say. He’s a major talent who will be huge for the Falcons this coming year, as the colleges stay hot on his trail.
