Personal Life

David Hicks played his freshman and sophomore seasons at Katy (Texas) Morton Ranch. He moved to Allen (Texas) High School for his junior season after his father, David Hicks Sr., took a job as the defensive line coach at the Texas powerhouse program. Hicks will play his senior year at Katy (Texas) Paetow after his father was hired on as an assistant. Hicks’ father played in the NFL for the Kansas City Chiefs, New York Giants and Cincinnati Bengals after graduating from Grambling State. He also played in the CFL for the Hamilton Tiger-Cats. Hicks said he owes a lot of his success to the drive instilled in him by his father. “He taught me to never stop working,” Hicks said. “I know it can be taken away at any minute.” Hicks’ mother, Charlah Woodard, also went to school at Grambling State and is a police officer. His siblings are Morgan Woodard, Karsten Woodard, Mason Hicks and Kennedy Hicks. Hicks plans on majoring in sports management. He lists working out, video games and welding as his hobbies.

2020 Draft: Rnd 2 Pick 15
David Hicks is a powerful, versatile defensive linemen with similar size, quick hands and play strength to Marlon Davidson. It remains to be seen if Hicks ultimately slides inside or plays as a big end, but we see him likely topping out at north of 300 pounds like Davidson.
