Brizard on Hicks: "Taylor, who started off the 2010 campaign at forward, moved to left back midway through the season, which was of much success. A natural left footer, she combines speed and quickness, which is essential for any outside back, and is able to use the attacking ability from her former position."
In 2010 (Freshman): Starting in 10 of 17 matches in her first year of college play, Taylor showed promise with her speed and endurance. She scored one goal and distributed one assist for the season. Her goal came in a 2-0 win over Georgia Southern on Sept. 10 and all but sealed the victory for the Golden Eagles in the 69th minute on a shot from 25 yards out. Her assist sparked a Tech rally in an eventual 3-2 overtime loss to Louisiana Tech on Sept. 15.
HIGH SCHOOL: Taylor attended Greely High School in Cumberland, Maine, where she earned three varsity letters. She also played for the Maine Coast United club team under Jon Meek. She earned honorable mention as a member of her team, and was a member of the National Honor Society.
PERSONAL: Full name is Taylor Anne Hicks… born April 10, 1992 to Ed Hicks and Jenn Vogel… intends to major in biology.
