State Championship Ring

{ Posted on 4:33 PM by JR Erickson }

The State Championship rings came in today. I dropped by Bishop Kelly High School to pick mine up. I just wanted to say one more time that I am so thankful for BK in giving me this ring. It is amazing, and I will always cherish it, and remember the great times I had in that epic year. A perfect ring for a perfect season.

I think Owen is a good candidate for a spelunking hobby later in life, much later, because I won't be caught in any tight places.

Thank you Coach Lee Leslie

{ Posted on 10:02 AM by JR Erickson }
I came to BK football because some friends referred me to the summer camps. I thought that it would be a great place for my son to start his optimist season.  As I watched my son, and the coaches and how they interacted with the boys, I was amazed.  I especially was amazed by how great a teacher Coach Leslie was, and for the lessons he taught my son.  I shot video of him speaking to the boys, and his words were inspirational to me, and my son looked up to him.  When Lew asked me to come back and shoot more video it was easy for me to say yes, I was excited to be around the program.  I was drawn to the program because of the Coaches, Especially Lee and Lew.  I wanted to share my views of how I saw Lee, and what kind of person he was, and continues to be in my eyes.  I have tons of film of Lee, and I extracted a few clips that I thought were very inspirational.  He is a man of faith, and a giant among me.  He was not only the coach of BK, but he was a coach to me too.  Thanks Lee for all you have done, and your example to me and my son.

Prefabricated Walls with Laser Cut Precision

{ Posted on 11:45 AM by JR Erickson }
The walls are up, and the trusses are flying later today.  The walls were prefabricated in a controlled factory environment, with precise laser cuts.  Not only is the house being built more efficiently, the home comes together so much better.  Siding contractors love it, because everything is perfectly square, and they don't have to perpetuate something that is out of line.  It continues all the way up to the finish carpenters.  Going green and using prefabricated walls is the only way to go, and if you're in the market for a new home make sure you ask the builder if they are using prefabricated walls for a greener product.  Call us today, and we will give you a tour, and explain in detail how prefabricated walls can benefit you.  (208) 376-2727 and ask for Rod.
