C.K. Hicks, a widely recruited Davis High wide receiver, will miss the 2013 football season after suffering a torn ACL in his knee during a prospective camp workout at UCLA on Friday.

“We’re just praying for him,” Blue Devil football coach Steve Smyte told The Enterprise by phone over the weekend. “More than just our team perspective, I’m sick for the kid. Everything he does he autographs it with excellence.”

Smyte, who talked with both C.K. and his dad, DHS associate head coach Marc Hicks on Friday, said the injured Hicks was “extremely disappointed,” adding “he’s a strong-character guy. He’s not going into a funk … not feeling sorry for himself.

“He’ll come back from this strong.”

Hicks, who will be a senior, has caught 56 passes for 1,075 yards and 10 touchdowns in the past two seasons. At least two of those scoring catches (60 and 79 yards) were highlight-reel plays.

Smyte said Hicks will continue to serve as a Blue Devil captain this fall.

“He said he wants to stay involved, help out at practice, help the other players grow.

“He a terrific student (3.8 GPA), great attitude, a great leader.”

Smyte says the injury occurred on “a simple fade pattern.” No contact, no fancy cut involved. Smyte added recovery and rehab could take up to six months.

Hicks was to have started Sierra football camp with the rest of the Devils on Tuesday.

Yolo Post 77

Yolo kept rolling with two wins in the past three days at the Chico Father’s Day Tournament, improving to 14-2 on the season.

After losing 5-4 to Napa on a late run, Post 77 came back to defeat Reno, 11-3 on Friday and edge the Sac Stingers, 7-5, at Doryland Field.

In Friday’s victory, Yolo broke a 3-3 tie with eight runs in the final two innings. Though they gave up three runs, local hurlers Zack Aukes and Justin Carlier combined to pitch six no-hit innings. Former Blue Devils Hayden Duer (3-for-4, double, RBI) and Joe Murray (double, three RBIs) paced the Post 77 offense.

On Saturday, Thomas Galart’s complete-game helped Yolo hold off the Stingers and the local offense pounded out 13 hits.
