Casey Mouw’s Idol

A lot of you might be walking around the box and wondering to yourself, “what is the story behind the man they call Jesus.”

First things first, sorry to break it to you but Jesus is only my nickname. A lot of people call me Cody Burgener. Not many people know this about me, but i have two middle names. Don’t laugh at my second one because i honestly think its pretty cool. My full name is Cody Jackson Stormy Burgener.

I hail from the great state of California where i grew up in a small town called Bonsall (which actually might be alot bigger than a lot of towns here is So Dak).

Great story time. When i was born, i actually had hundreds of doctors gather around me because they have never witness a baby that came out as a bad a**. And yes it has carried on with me my entire life so far.

Life has been good to me throughout my childhood. I grew up competing in all sports, but my two major sports were baseball and, of course, weightlifting.

Baseball has been my passion every since i could remember. Everything about it just gives me the goose bumps. The smell, the game, the uniforms. You name it, i love it.

Weightlifting on the other hand was mainly a sport I competed in to help me improve on my baseball skills. I competed in competitions from the age of 6 to 17. There were two reasons why i had to give up competing in weightlifting competitions. One, i knew i couldn’t be a full time baseball player if i wanted to be an all star weightlifter, so having the passion for baseball, i chose the baseball route. Second, for some reason every time i put a singlet on the ladies came running to me. I don’t know if it was my butt or my chest or something, but it got them going. So for my alternative route, i decided to give shows with my singlet on. Just email me if anyone is interested.

Now all of your wondering how i actually came to Sioux Falls from California. I was at a time in my life where i was controlling San Diego to much, so i decided it is time for another state to feel the Cody vibe. I ended up getting a baseball scholarship to attend the University of Sioux Falls.

I’ve been in Sioux Falls for three years now and have been enjoying it ever since. The people out here are great.

Well that is just a little background about the life of Jesus. If anyone wants to know more, feel free to ask.

Oh by the way i love to dance!!!!
