Who Is Mike Hickmon? Coach From Lancaster, Texas Gunned Down By Aqib Talib

Mike Hickmon was the football coach for the South East Dallas Wolverines who was shot by former NFL player and North Dallas United coach Yaqub Talib. He and his brother Aqib Talib led the team. Local fire department responders performed CPR on their way out of the field.

According to one parent, similar cases happen at unofficial events. To illustrate, while there are several instances of adults misbehaving during official competitions in youth sports, there is tight security to watch and control any violence. Whereas, in such informal games, the brutality tops.

According to reports, Talib was previously taken into custody for other causes in Dallas. Last season, even though numerous serious allegations against a coach, the Texas Rangers youth basketball program kept using him. 

Nevertheless, for this incident, the brother of Aqib Talib, Yaqub, has been reported to be the real murderer. Following the incident, umpires are also defecting in droves from regional associations. Parents reportedly follow some referees and umpires to their vehicles.
