Ex-Cyclone Hicks found dead

Former Iowa State running back Steve Hicks was found dead Friday morning near his hometown of Omaha, Neb.

Police have not released details or an explanation behind Hicks’ death. All we know is that he was discovered around 8:30 a.m. on Interstate 480 underneath the bridges that form the I-480 and North Freeway interchange.

Hicks led the Cyclones in rushing four consecutive years from 2003-06 and was ISU’s last 1,000-yard rusher, running for 1,062 yards as a sophomore in ’04.

Hicks ranks seventh on the school’s all-time rushing list with 2,601 yards.

His death comes as a great shock. Condolences to his family, friends and former teammates.
