Player Bio

Hickey started playing football late after being a Queensland junior volleyball representative.

Hickey is a project ruckman who spent most of the season in the reserves before suffering a knee injury that sidelined him for eight weeks.

He made a promising debut in round 22 against Adelaide, collecting 14 touches and kicking a goal.

The son of a former top-level Brisbane rugby league player, Hickey joined the GC SUNS as a Queensland Zone priority selection at the end of the 2010 VFL season.

Despite his relatively late arrival to the sport, Hickey was a standout at the recent NAB AFL Draft Combine at the AIS in Canberra. He was the best-performed ruckman in the agility test and equal second best among ruckmen in the beep test. He also ranked second overall in the new 'clean hands' test.

Draft history: 2010 local talent access selection (Gold Coast).
