  • 'secret to success'

    Like most Eastern Kentuckians, Billy Hicks was destined to be a coal miner, but Hicks had something different in mind.

    “I wasn’t a very good coal miner because I was too lazy. So, I figured I had better make a good basketball coach,” Hicks said.

    He got the chance to prove himself when the superintendent of the Harlan County School District, gave him a chance.

    “She said, ‘I see it in your eyes. You’re different.’” Hicks said. “It was like wow, somebody believed in me.”
