Hickman, Kahaulelio return to Oilers
The Oilers have solidified their 2006 coaching staff with the signing of Brian Hickman to the assistant coaching position left vacant when Wes Davis was unable to return. In 2004, Hickman served with the Oilers alongside current Oilers head coach Thad Johnson under head coach Aric Thomas. Hickman now serves as an assistant to Thomas at Eastern Oklahoma State College. The former catcher from Oral Roberts University played several seasons in the White Sox organization before entering the coaching ranks.
Oral Roberts University second baseman Jake Kahaulelio has signed to return to the Oilers. In the 2005 season, Kahaulelio led the Oilers in nearly all batting categories and ranked second in the Alaska Baseball League in hits and third in both average and RBI. At the conclusion of the season, Kahaulelio was named to the ABL top-10 pro prospect list. Kahaulelio is a recreation administration major and calls Windsor, Calif., his hometown.
