Hickman to attend Bengals rookie camp as free agent
While Jackson County area football fans may not have heard too many locally familiar names during the broadcast of the NFL draft over the weekend, one area player nonetheless earned the chance to continue his career at the professional level.
Holton alum Forrestal Hickman was contacted by the Cincinnati Bengals after the conclusion of the draft and offered the chance to take part in the team’s rookie minicamp as an undrafted free agent.
The 6’ 8”, 315-lb. left tackle was a four-year starter at Division II Missouri S&T during his college career and was named to the All-League team in the Great Lakes Valley Conference three out of those four years.
Now, Hickman will try to achieve his goal of making an NFL roster and that journey will start at Cincinnati’s rookie minicamp this coming weekend. Hickman is the son of Brian and Lisa Hickman of Holton.
