A scholarship has been established honoring Mylan Hicks, the Calgary Stampeder who was gunned down at a night club last month.
The Michigan State Athletic department has set up the Mylan Hicks Memorial Football Scholarship Endowment.
“Mylan was the kind of guy who always had a gleam in his eye and he always brought something good out in you as a person,” said MSU head football coach Mark Dantonio in a statement on the University’s website. “One of the best things you can say about someone is that they’re a great teammate and if you listen this week to those who played with Mylan you kept hearing that over and over. He approached everything he did going 100 miles per hour and this scholarship will ensure his legacy endures forever with Spartan football.”
Mylan graduated from MSU in 2014 with a bachelor’s degree in psychology. Following the 2014 season at MSU he was given the Biggie Munn Award, also known as the most inspirational player award.
