recruit757 Fab 30: Colten Hicks – Poquoson HS #24
by Andy Hilton, recruit757
It might shock you to learn that our #24 player in the recruit757 Fab 30 is from Class 2 Poquoson High School. The Bull Islanders made a strong playoff run last season, and it came on the backs of talented players like our #24 selection. It’s coaching AND talent that has gotten Poquoson into the playoffs eleven years in a row. In eight of those eleven years, Poquoson has won a playoff game, and in 2010 they won the state title for Class 3.
Heading into the regular season, we recognize the top 30 senior prospects in the 757. We’ve scoured the region for talent for almost ten years now, keeping an eye on the best of the best, but also looking for opportunities to connect athlete and high school programs with college coaches. Coming in as the 24th best senior prospect region-wide is Poquoson High School athlete Colten Hicks.
#24 Colten Hicks (2019 RB/WR/LB 6-2 190) – Poquoson High School
Colten Hicks has started on the varsity and had an impact since he was a ninth grader. Last year, he punted, played running back, wide receiver, and outside linebacker. In his junior season, Hicks was selected as a First Team All-State utility man and a Second Team All-State punter.
This year, is his year to step up like never before. He’s a senior leader. It would be hard, if not impossible to find another player on the field who has played more snaps than Colten.
He’ll have the opportunity to get plenty of touches this fall. In last year’s playoff run, he had a starring role in his team’s 49-0 win over Greensville County. Poquoson running back Bailey Green had 151 yards rushing and three touchdowns on ten carries while Hicks rushed for over 150 yards and scored two touchdowns in the game. Poquoson didn’t throw a single pass in that win, and as long as the Bull Islanders have the lead on any given night, you can expect the running backs to get a workout.
