DARLINGTON -- Alex Erickson, former Wisconsin Badger football player, newly signed with the Cincinnati Bengals, visited Holy Rosary School in Darlington recently.

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.

He signed autographs, answered questions, ate lunch with the children, and played with them during recess.

“We were greater fans when he left (if that was possible) and wish him the best in the NFL,” said Holy Rosary Principal Diane Smith-Hole.

In the 2015 football season, Erickson had 978 receiving yards for the Badgers.
