“We are extremely pleased to have Isaiah join the Axemen family next year,” commented Axemen Head Coach Jeff Cummins.  “He is the kind of player, person and student-athlete we are looking for here at Acadia and expect great things from him on and off the field!”

“I can’t wait to get him here and coach him because we’re going to have a lot of fun and win a bunch of games with him.”

The offensive lineman has played for multiple teams during his gridiron career including Cumberland Panthers of the Ontario Varsity Football League (OVFL), as well as both the midget South Ottawa Stampeders and Gloucester South Raiders of the National Capital Amateur Football Association (NCAFA).

Moreover, Hickson participated in the Ontario Prospect Challenge (OPC) as a member of Team East’s varsity squad this past May at TD Place in Ottawa.

For his part, the Ontario standout opted for the Axemen for several reasons.

“I chose Acadia just as much for academic program as its football program, their smaller class sizes and campus included,” explained Hickson of his commitment.  “The moment I’d first arrived in Wolfville, I immediately felt at home and was welcomed by all the coaches and players there at the time. “

“The football program is also not lacking in anything, and I’m very comfortable with their offence.  Lastly, I feel that I will benefit from the coaches at Acadia and ultimately become a better football player with their help.”
