Today we interviewed Jackson Hickman, volleyball athlete for GCU! Read a little bit more about him below...
Name: Jackson Hickman
The Sport You Play: Volleyball
TallSlim Tees Size: XL
Who do you play [insert sport] for?
I play for Grand Canyon University men's volleyball team.
What is your greatest athletic achievement?
Becoming the 2nd second team All American in GCU history, and being apart of the first team in GCU history to make it to the national tournament. It was truly the greatest experience in my life.
Share a weird/funny fact about yourself!
A funny fact about me is that I am a diehard Arizona sports fan, and the reason it’s a funny fact is because Arizona sports has always let me down and I just continue to ride with them.
Have you ever been given a "tall nickname" before?
People called me Stretch when I was younger just because I was very lengthy as a kid.
What’s your favorite sport to play just for fun?
Basketball is my favorite sport to play just for fun, but I have been dabbling in pickle ball and can get behind that low impact sport for sure.
What's your favorite thing about being tall?
My favorite thing about being tall is that I am not short! Seriously though, I feel like my favorite thing about being tall is that I can dunk - that's my single favorite physical act because a lot of people cannot do so.
What is your favorite thing to wear as a tall slim guy?
It has been so hard to pick things to wear because everything fits me so odd that I can’t even wear it comfortably. Luckily with TallSlim Tees, I can go out feeling good to go in any situation because my shirt fits me right!
Share your best advice or encouragement to fellow athletes:
The best advice I could give to fellow athletes is that there is no secret to becoming great at what you do, it's consistent hard work, day in day out putting in extra and working at your craft. It will pay off without a doubt.
Thanks for repping TallSlim Tees and crushing it at volleyball, Jackson!
