Michigan State honors Mylan Hicks with No. 6 at midfield


Mylan Hicks was an alumnus of Michigan State and a member of the football brotherhood there. A few weeks ago, he was shot and killed in front of a nightclub in Canada in an act of random and senseless violence. Michigan State will honor him by putting his No. 6 at midfield this Saturday.

Hicks was 23 years old and continuing his dream of playing professional football for the Calgary Stampeeders. Michigan has responded with several different types of tributes to Hicks’ memory; including a tribute video, t-shirts worn by the players and now by putting his No. 6 at midfield.

The university has also made an endowment available in his honor.

Hicks’ funeral is to be held on Friday, Oct. 7 in his home town of Detroit. There will be two services, one for his family at 10 A.M. and another that is open to the public at 11.

Nelson Lugela, 19, was charged with second-degree murder in Hicks’ death.
