Just looking at Darryl Hicks, he appears to be just like any other player on the Shelby County High School basketball team.
You see loads of potential in his long, 6-foot-2, 175-pound frame that appears to have room to grow.
What you don't see is that Hicks has to ride the bus to practice everyday, and he doesn't clown around with his teammates in the hall between classes.
That’s because he is 14 years old and an eighth grader at West Middle School.
But he also is the first player off the bench for the Rockets.
