After Coronavirus Ruined His Baseball Plans for Spring Season, Pottstown’s David Hicks Now Focusing on His Future

After coronavirus ruined his plans for the last go-around with Pottstown’s varsity baseball team this spring, David Hicks decided to focus on his future.

After coronavirus ruined his hopes to have one last go-around with Pottstown High School’s varsity baseball team this spring, David Hicks decided to switch his focus on his future, writes Jeff Stover for the PA Prep Live.

Hicks was one of six core players who were ready to improve the team’s 3-15 finish in 2018. But with the cancelation of the remainder of the 2019-20 school year, it was not possible to fulfill this ambition.

Finding out about the cancelation was tough, said Hicks.

“One thing for me is the ability to take the field and have one last season,” he said. “Pottstown finally had a team.”

So now Hicks is thinking of where to go next and has already received an appointment to United States Naval Academy as part of its Class of 2024 from Rep. Madeleine Dean, the U.S. Representative from the Fourth Congressional District.

“I want to be a pilot,” David said. “It’s been a goal of mine since I was a kid.”

In addition, he is seeking a venue of camaraderie, which is a traditional part of any service-academy experience.
