Raymond Erickson (a young Brian Urlacher) Featured on Sports Clipz TV Youth Sports YouTube Channel.

Raymond, my son is an awesome kid, some of you know that already.  A lot of you wonder how could such a nice kid come from someone like me?  ha ha, well, luckily there is another person involved in the equation, and that is my wife.  Rachael is an extraordinary person in my opinion, and all the good positive stuff got handed down to Raymond.  He is cool kid off the field, and a total beast on the field.  Some have questioned how he can make that work, and even questioned if he is really that nice.  Well, he is the real deal, and I am blessed to be his dad.

He has got a lot of attention from his hard nosed football play, often been compared to a young Brian Urlacher.  He isn’t the fastest on the field, the biggest, or even the strongest, but he has the most heart. He plays full throttle, and he goes in with reckless abandonment.  Some of you have seen him play, and you see that he has no fear when he goes up against the biggest kids on the field. Sports Clipz TV (Instagram) reached out to me on YouTube channel asking to feature him on their channel.  I agreed, and they took the last two years highlights from my channel and did their own edit.  Their channel is pretty well known mostly in football country in the south.  They have lots of great videos of youth fenoms coming up, and they get tons of views.  Raymond has already received lots of attention with both of his last two highlights combined almost reaching a total of 860,000 views! from my own channel.  I liked their edit, and was fun to see them mash up the clips to their own liking,  Please enjoy!

Coach asked the Mavericks during workouts which team they choose to win the Super Bowl, so each boy had to choose a side.  I took video so we know who picked what side because the first day back at workouts, the loosers have to do a bunch of extra workouts while the winners get to watch and tease!  So here we go, which side do you pick?  Patriots or the Falcons?  Go!

Congratulations to these boys on signing their letters of intent today. @trovig12 @kpatty_21 @ballenger77 @_cordellshelton_ @josh_elsberry click my link in the bio to see the latest blog post with their photos and a link to the online gallery. #footballscholarship #nationalsigningday #mountainviewfootball

February 1st is known for being the National Signing day for perspective collegiate athletes.  They sign their letters of intent with all their parents, friends, coaches and media.  Its a great day commemorating the athletes and their journey that why have worked so hard for.  Also it’s a great day for the parents and coaches who are there and have been there with them on their on this track for many years. It’s a great day of celebration for the hard work and the intense effort these boys have put forth.  (I know, I have seen the tape!.. um I created the tape.. ha haha)  Even though we had many football players committing today, there is also a few more that will be signing letters soon as they decide or get offers.  For today, here are the boys from the 2016 Mtn View  5A Idaho State championship football team.  Horns Up!
