Like former Buckeye Sam Hubbard, Ronnie Hickman was once a standout lacrosse player. He played the sport from third grade until just before his senior season. Then he decided to focus on football. His decision was informed by the fact that he had recorded 47 tackles and two interceptions on a state championship team in New Jersey just the year prior. Unfortunately for Hickman, though, that would be his last full campaign before moving on to the next level, as he tore his ACL this past October.
