My name is Jacob Hicks, I am 15 years old, born and raised in Red Deer. I am in grade 9 French Immersion at Lindsay Thurber Comprehensive High School. I am a competitive Volleyball, Basketball and Baseball player, but enjoy sports of all kinds. In volleyball I was named captain of my Kings Club team and MVP on the grade 9 team at Thurber.  In basketball I played for the grade 9 team at Lindsay Thurber and represented Zone 4 in the Alberta Summer Games in 2016. In baseball I play for the bantam AAA Braves. My goal as a athlete is to continue in all 3 sports throughout high school and furthermore, play one of them post secondary, preferably volleyball.

Jacob is also a hockey official and was awarded the Stu Hitmen award this year. "The Stu Hitman Award is presented annually to an active North Central Zone Referee's Committee official who demonstrates extraordinary dedication and commitment to officiating Red Deer Minor Hockey.
