Christian County standout Anthony Hickey is known as one of the best point guards in Kentucky’s 2011 class. But he’s also a solid football player who’s coming back to the Colonel squad after a year off.

Anthony Hickey was an All-Region selection at point guard last year and led Christian County to the second round of the Sweet 16. He’s earned several scholarship offers for his play, but now he’s back competing on the football field after taking a year off.

Hickey has worked extra hard to reacquaint himself with the sport and the playbook. “It gets hard when you are behind,” he said. ”I’m catching up and trying to get better every day,” he s aid.

Even with the year off, his athleticism will be an asset to the team. “My strength and speed are my strengths. But learning the plays again is my weakness,” he continued. But that hasn’t held him back to this point. The 5-foot-10, 170-pounder is playing a big role for the Colonels.

“I play quarterback, defensive back and running back,” said Hickey.

Hickey played a pivotal role against the Warren Central Dragons in the season opener on Saturday. The Colonels won 15-7 behind Anthony’s strong effort.

“I got a touchdowns and an interception. I was named MVP,” he said.

In the low scoring affair, Hickey had nine carries for 56 yards and a touchdown. He threw the ball only four times, but completed two of them for 26 yards through the air.
