Kalib Hicks and dominant defense lead Ryan to blowout win over Longview (Denton RC)
By Steve Gamel Contributing Writer
FRISCO — Ryan junior running back Kalib Hicks was the obvious choice for Saturday’s player of the game.
With that said, his own defense tried its best to bump him from that top spot.
In a showdown of Top-5 teams in Class 5A Division I, defending state champion Ryan forced three turnovers, held No. 5 Longview to 45 yards in the second half and watched as Hicks piled up 139 rushing yards and three touchdowns on just nine carries en route to a 40-7 win in the inaugural Jerry Jones Classic at The Ford Center at The Star.
