Proposed resolution honors coach

PULASKI COUNTY — The Pulaski County Board of Supervisors will consider a resolution at next week’s meeting that would support the naming of the high school football field after former football coach Joel Hicks.
In the draft resolution, Hicks is acknowledged for having “brought great distinction to the football and overall athletic program at Pulaski County High School.”
It points out that Hicks won more than 75 percent of the games he coached during his career from 1964-2002, accumulating a record of 301-96-1. The resolution refers to Hicks’ coaching record as “a mark of excellence and a proven mastery of his profession.”
Hicks coached at PCHS for 24 years, with none of his teams ever having a losing season. Those teams won one state championship, six regional championships and 15 district championships, according to the draft resolution. Hicks coached in 39 playoff games, appeared in three state final matches and was named State Coach of the Year three times.
The resolution also acknowledges that four of Hicks’ players went on to play in the National Football League and that 16 played for major Division I college football teams.
Hicks “helped student athletes build character and better lives through the programs in which he worked,” the resolution continues.
It goes on to say that the supervisors “fully support” honoring Hicks at the first home game of the 2008-09 season by naming the football field Joel L. Hicks Field.
The supervisors will decide whether to adopt the resolution at their Monday, July 28, meeting at 7 p.m. in the supervisors’ meeting room of the Central Administration Building on Third Street.
