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.

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.

It was another cool, though overall pleasant day across the Tri-State - after only seeing temperatures dive as low as 22° early this morning, peak temperatures ended up climbing a few degrees higher than Thursday's; that being said, Evansville’s high temperature of 27° Was still 15° below average for this time of the year. As for the evening ahead, temperatures will gradually fall for 23° around dinner time back down to 19° by10 PM. A weak northerly wind flow most of the night paired with our crystal clear skies will cause temperatures to of fall back down into the mid to low teens once again - Evansville's anticipated low temperature of 12° will mark or coolest since the morning of January 7th.
