BRISTOL - Dathan Hickey may not be playing for Bristol Central next fall, but that doesnâ€™t mean there wonâ€™t be an opportunity to watch him.
ESPN and the Ivy League reached a 10-year deal that will show more than 1,100 Ivy League games across ESPN networks, and the annual Harvard-Yale football game will be part of six Ivy League football games per year shown on cable.
Hickey is expected to be playing for Yale next season as a future freshman.
â€śHaving the opportunity to play on ESPN is both crazy and unreal,â€ť Hickey said.
â€śItâ€™s like all of my dreams are coming true right before my eyes. Growing up watching ESPN and all the great players doing what they love is truly something special. I finally came to the realization that I can say Iâ€™m going to be one of those players that kids see, play, and aspire to be like. Itâ€™s a blessing to say the least. All glory to God.â€ť
