From the Editor: Years ago when I was working at a postgame party for the BSU vs. Idaho game, a coworker commented that the reason schools celebrate athletics is because athletics bring our communities together again and again. And that couldn’t be more true here at Bishop Kelly. There’s something pretty magical about sitting in the stands on Friday night with 2,000+ of your closest black and gold clad friends. I can’t walk to my seat without running into high school classmates, former teachers, old and new friends, and occasionally my kids – although they usually avoid me until they need popcorn money. So I decided a few weeks ago that I wanted to put a football picture on the cover of The Roundtable to celebrate the success of our season, and symbolize the togetherness we have on Friday nights each fall.
team captains and their new best buddy, Moses, walking onto the field to shake hands with the opposing team. Moses is 8 years old. He lives here in Boise with his mom and dad, who adopted him several years ago. Moses has Down Syndrome, and our guys were connected to him through an organization called 4 the Ability that matches kids with disabilities to student athletes. Moses loves to watch the Knights under the lights on Friday night, and this team loves Moses. Everyone agrees that the best part of the season has been Moses’ smile.
I started asking around for the best football photo this season had to offer, and unanimously, this is what everyone chose. This is a photo of our

By the time you read this, BK will have already finished our football season. But right now, as I’m typing away, we are just getting ready to host the state semifinals against Blackfoot. Naturally, there’s some excitement around here about our historic fourth run for a state title. I hope by the time The Roundtable arrives in your mailbox the Knights have made history, and we have come together as a community to watch it happen. But no matter what, these young men and their new friend Moses will remember this season as one for the books.

we have to change our campus to best serve students. Our BK Alumknights and Saint Teresa’s Alumni can be proud to know that Bishop Kelly is thriving with the support of graduates, parents, and friends of the school. The generous support of our community is allowing us to improve our facilities and programs so that generations of future knights can learn and grow, share their faith, and make friendships that last a lifetime.
with our 2015-2020 Strategic Plan, Bishop Kelly has launched a capital campaign called BK2020 Vision. Bishop Kelly partnered with Erstad Architects and The Estimé Group to develop a plan to accommodate significant anticipated student growth by 2020, and strengthen our academic spaces and programs, particularly in Science, Computer Science, and Engineering. We are confident this cutting edge plan will allow the school to address

in scholarships. Our ACT and SAT scores are among the highest in the state and are well above the national averages. Over 75 percent of our students participate in our sports and extracurricular academic programs. In the 2015-16 school year, Bishop Kelly won five athletic state titles and five academic state championships. In addition, students contributed over 72,000 hours of service to our community. Since the 2010-11 school year, Bishop Kelly’s enrollment has increased by over 35 percent and this year we welcomed a record 806 students. To continue to achieve this level of excellence and respond to our growth, we have made significant improvements to our campus. In 2012, we built the new student commons. In 2014, the school added seven new classrooms and a championship tennis complex which includes eight tennis courts, and completed a $1.0 million renovation of the Fraser Library. We also expanded our student parking lot, significantly renovated and upgraded our performance training center, and built a new

Irvine Family Scholarship Chuck Irvine began sharing his time and energy with Bishop Kelly in the fall of 1975, when he put his baking skills to work on behalf of the BK Booster Club. For the next 34 years, Chuck had in hand in innumerable activities at Bishop Kelly, Including helping to raise funds for the school and serving as head of maintenance for 24 years. In
that role, Chuck worked hard – very hard – making sure that Bishop Kelly’s students, faculty, and staff enjoyed the benefits of a spotless, well-maintained, and truly well-loved facility.

Band of Brothers
Juniors and Seniors at BK now have the opportunity to take a new U.S. History course called “Band of Brothers” which gives students a comprehensive understanding of the American soldier during World War II. Taught by Alumknight and long time faculty member, Larry Crump, ’82, the two semester course aims to give an in-depth look at America’s military involvement in the Second World War, and uses a lens of patriotism, courage, sacrifice, integrity, and honor to help students understand the American experience. BK supporter Tom Cooney came to the Band of Brothers class to talk with students about his experiences during WWII. After his graduation from Notre Dame, Cooney was commissioned as an Ensign in the U.S. Navy and assigned to a landing ship. Students in the Band of Brothers class listened with great interest as Mr. Cooney told them firsthand about the U.S. invasion of Italy in 1943. In addition to learning from a WWII Veteran, Mr. Crump took some of the students in the Band of Brothers Class on a Spring Break trip to France to visit historical sites that are significant to World War II.

National Recognition for Coach Carpenter Jeff Carpenter, Bishop Kelly’s Head Track and Field Coach, has
been named Girls National Head Track and Field Coach of the Year by the U.S. Track and Field and Cross Country Coaches Association. Carpenter was chosen by a panel of judges based
on Bishop Kelly’s finishes at the State Track Meet, the number of different events in which BK athletes were qualified, individual championships, and how Bishop Kelly’s performances stack up to previous years, among other criteria. In May, Bishop Kelly steamrolled the competition at the State Track Meet. Both the Boys and Girls teams took first place, with

the Lady Knights scoring 164.5 points – twice as many points as the runner-up! Bishop Kelly qualified athletes in every single individual event, as well as each relay. BK girls came home with
individual state titles in the discus throw and 100 hurdles, as well as state titles in the 4×100 and 4×200 relays. The boys won titles in the 100, 200, 400, 4x100, 4x400, 1600 Sprint Medley Relay, and Discus. They scored 106 points. Carpenter has been enjoying coaching success on the track at BK for five years, taking over as Head Track and Field Coach in 2013. In addition to his coaching responsibilities, Carpenter is the Assistant Activities Director and teaches Girls P.E. classes. Congratulations on this great honor Coach Carp!

“big man on campus” and a tremendous athlete who played several sports. “Jack played football and baseball,” says Kerwer. “And he played hockey too, even though he couldn’t skate.” After high school both men began teaching and coaching, eventually returning to Prep where their friendship solidified. After several years, Krewer left New York to work with the Frontier Apostolate in Canada. While there, he met his wife and moved to the west coast to continue teaching. Along the way, he got a Christmas card from his old friend Jack Capper who had started teaching and coaching JV football at Bishop Kelly High School in 1974. By 1976 Capper had convinced Krewer to come to Idaho, where he interviewed with Father Wilson for a job at BK. Krewer remembers Father Wilson telling him, “I want Sister Leo Anthony to teach Chemistry, but if she says no, you can have the job.” She said no, and the rest is history for the two friends from Brooklyn.

Producer. He currently produces the Survivor: Behind the Scenes of Challenges videos for CBS. These two-minute videos are highlight tapes of the Immunity Challenges that will be featured in that week’s episode. Survivor films two seasons back-to-back, which means the crew is on location with two different casts for about four months, March through June. The crew is always near the cast, and at least one crew member (either a producer or camera operator) is always monitoring them. However, they rarely interact with, or even speak to the cast. “We literally establish a line in the sand that we don’t cross,” says Browning. “Essentially, we don’t want to be a distraction to their million dollar game.”
too close for comfort to local conflicts and clashes, gotten sideways with local customs officials, and most recently endured extreme weather. The contestants on Survivor: Millennials vs. Gen X, which began airing in September, were evacuated during filming when Tropical Cyclone Zena tore through the Fiji Islands in April. But even in the absence of a cyclone, Browning says Mother Nature takes her toll. “One day can be blistering hot, and the next day can be a torrential downpour. No matter the forecast, the show must go on.” Both Alumknights agree that the risks have been worth the rewards, and their time on the Survivor crew has been rewarding personally and professionally. “The best part of working on Survivor is working with (host) Jeff Probst,” says Warburton. “He’s so personable with everyone on the crew. He’s really hands on, and thankful for the work that we do.” When not on location both Alumknights pursue other freelance opportunities in the Film and Television Industry. Browning is currently working in L.A., and Warburton just wrapped up a project in Louisiana with the cast from Duck Dynasty. He then started a full-time job with the largest video, audio, and lighting rental company in the world. So while Warburton is staying stateside to begin his new adventure, Browning will be heading off to film another season of Survivor in March. Best of luck to these talented Alumknights! We are proud to say we knew them before they were famous.
