Name: Sean Hickey
Position: Offensive Tackle
Year: RS Senior
Hometown: Murrysville, PA
High School: Franklin Regional
2013 Stats: Hickey started every game and did some nice work, which lead to receiving All-ACC Honorable Mention...um...honors.
2014 Projections: He's The Guy on the O-line. Again. Expect him to continue to be integral to the success of Syracuse's offense.
How'd He Get Here: Hickey picked SU over Boston College. Personally, I think we should be able to get some Orange Eagle points for stuff like this. Can I get a ruling?
What'd Recruiting Sites Say: Two stars from Scout and Rivals.
Money Quote: This comes courtesy of Terrel Hunt, actually, when he found out Hickey was returning this season:
Oh man...as soon as I heard it, I texted him "thank you." That's all I said. That was the conversation.
Twitterfeed: Check him out @HickeyCuse60.
Tweets Of Wonder: A man after my own heart:
Watched 30 episodes of Game of Thrones in 4 days two weeks ago so I could be #throning tonight.— Sean Hickey (@HickeyCuse60) April 7, 2014
What Does Shafer Think Of Him: Recently, Shafer praised Hickey's leadership, saying:
I've been pleased with [him] stepping up to the plate. He's played left tackle for us for a long time and I liked the way he stepped up during practice and pulled people with him.
Interesting Nugget O'Interest: Sean did some serious conditioning during the off season, focusing on getting stronger in his lower body.
Let's Get A Good Look Atcha: This video doesn't focus on Hickey in particular, but it's 9+ minutes of offense during the Texas Bowl. It's fun.
