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.
