Erickson is a member of Holy Rosary Parish and a graduate of the Darlington Public Schools.
The former wide receiver for the Badgers gave a talk to the students and shared the role that faith played before and after each Badger game.
He also encouraged the children to develop the talents that God has given them by exploring different opportunities in sports or other areas of their lives. He reminded them not to be discouraged or give up when things do not come easily to them.
