Don Hicks
The Centralia Sports Hall of Fame
1991 VIP Award Winner


Don was another one of those ardent sports enthusiasts so well known in Centralia over the years.

He followed all sports, but Centralia High School was the main game in town.  Don and his family were a fixture at all high school events and he hardly missed a basketball or football game from the late 20's to the early 70's.  When he passed away he had super-sectional tickets in his pocket.   

In his early years Don participated on the Hoffman Clothiers independent basketball team when they won 100 games and lost only two in two years.  

He was an active bowler and tennis player and served as president on the Organizational Bowling League.  Don was also active in other community projects as he served as president of the Jaycees.
