Bickett grew up on a farm in Bureau County and was part of one of the greatest small school stories in Illinois.  He played basketball at Ohio High School (enrollment 70) and his team advanced all the way to the state championship game in 1986. Bickett would score 2,177 points in his high school career.  He currently teaches at Bureau Valley High School and coaches at Rock Falls.
