As a high school coach in Wilson, South Carolina, Lawrence Eaddy was already familiar with Landmark Creations. "I'd purchased my first inflatable tunnel [from Landmark]," he reports. "I knew the quality of their products."
So, when Eaddy moved to Kansas to take over as Head Football/Strength Coach at Bonner Springs High School, he turned to Landmark once again. And this time, too, he commissioned a custom inflatable sports tunnel.
"We wanted to generate more excitement and school spirit," Eaddy explains. "Also, we want our younger student-athletes dreaming of the day that they too will get to run through the tunnel."
Working closely with Eaddy, Landmark designed and built a huge inflatable tunnel – 16 feet high, 16 feet wide, and a full 40 feet long. Emblazoned with the message "Brave Nation," the sports tunnel serves as the entrance for the Bonner Springs Braves sports teams. Its distinctive design even complements the 5A high school's architecture.
"We use it when our team enters the football game," says Eaddy, "and also for wrestling meets." So far, he reports, "it has increased our program's profile and excitement for the games."
Everyone seems to love the impressive custom inflatable – players and students as well as fans from the local community. And Coach Eaddy couldn't be happier. "This was my second project with Landmark," he relates, "and I am so pleased with the results."
