County Rivalry Football Game Doubling as Fundraiser for Posey County Deputy Shot in Line of Duty

The community is continuing to rally around Posey County Deputy Bryan Hicks who is still recovering from a shooting that took place last month.

Posted: Oct 6, 2021 8:45 PM

Friday night’s rivalry matchup between Mt. Vernon and North Posey will be for Deputy Bryan Hicks.

For the Vikings and the Wildcats, football is more than just a sport. It’s an opportunity to unite and fight for one purpose.

Head Coach at North Posey Waylon Schenk told 44News, “Deputy Hicks is one of the deputies that works locally here for us and works a lot of the security events here at our school. He's been an awesome, great guy and an awesome asset to our community. It's a great community to live in and, like I said, we'll put rivalries aside to come together to support him and his family in this time of need.”

All attendees of Friday night’s game are being asked to wear blue. Mt. Vernon Head Coach Lukas Messmer told 44News, even the players will have some blue on in support of Hicks and his family.

Wristbands will be sold at the game as well. Those proceeds will be given to Hicks’ family to help with medical expenses and he continues to recover.

Kickoff is at 7 p.m. at Mt. Vernon.

The cold front has come and gone and with it our threat for Severe Weather. However, scattered showers and thunderstorms will continue to affect portions of the Tri-State through the remainder of the evening ahead. In fact, there is a possibility that some of the thunderstorms we see between now and 9PM or so could produce small hail and wind gusts in excess of 40 mph. Anyone planning on attending a football game this evening should make sure an umbrella or poncho is on hand to keep you dry and should anticipate at least some rain delays to occur. The rain should finally exit east of the Tri-State between 10PM and 12AM; it's around that time that wind speeds will again pick up some steam - our northwesterly winds are expected to gust as high as 35 mph at times overnight.
