Braxton: I wish to meet the Denver Broncos

Braxton- "I wish to meet the Denver Broncos"

“ For as long as he can remember he's loved one team - The Denver Broncos ”

Braxton is a football-loving teenager from Rock Springs, Wyoming. From playing Madden NFL to watching The Longest Yard, Braxton is a fan of the sport through and through. When Braxton was younger he was diagnosed with a rare bone disorder, but he hasn’t let his condition interfere with his love of playing football with his older brother. 

For as long as he can remember he’s loved one team - the Denver Broncos. The year after the Broncos won Super Bowl 50, Braxton knew he’d want to meet some of the members of the Denver Broncos football team for his one true wish. To a boy from Rock Springs, the Broncos are the at the very heart of his love for football. In December, Braxton and his family traveled from his hometown to Denver, Colorado for a sports-filled weekend and to finally meet the team he had idolized for years. 

On a Friday afternoon Braxton headed to the Broncos training facility and got to meet with the players in person. He received a tour of Sports Authority Field at Mile High and a tour of Dove Valley, the Denver Broncos training facility, where he watched the team practice and got to meet the players. A smile never left Braxton’s face. 

After meeting the team, Braxton and his family attended the December 18th game against the New England Patriots. In the stands they cheered with other Broncos fans and were able to finish their weekend with an unforgettable experience for Braxton, a young man who loves the game of football.
