Update: I guess so... I always just assumed it was the same guy, but the Hicks that coaches at Fullerton is over 40... heh.
Good thing I don't do investigative journalism for a living.. lol The videos above are definitely from the event though.

Former Navy All-American Wrestler Dan Hicks Captures Bronze Medal in Finland
VANTAA, Finland - Former Navy All-American Dan Hicks wrestled his way to a third-place finish at the 2002 Vantaa Cup (Dec. 7-8) to earn the bronze medal in the 96 kg./211.5-pound weight class, while competing for the United States Marine Corps.
Hicks, who served as the Navy team captain during the 1994-95 season and is fourth in school history with 114 all-time victories, was dominant in his first-two matches of the tournament, recording a pin and a technical fall. The 1994 NCAA All-American and three-time Eastern Intercollegiate Wrestling Association champion dropped his first match of the tournament in the semifinals, as Sweden's Martin Lidberg came away with a 3-0 decision. Lidberg is a former World bronze medallist and European champion. Hicks bounced back in his final match to defeat Latvia's Igors Kostins, 6-0, to secure the bronze medal.
The U.S. Marine Corps team, with five wrestlers competing, tied with Greece for seventh place with six points.
Any idea who's who in those vids?
