DENVER — The Denver Broncos will support Colorado schools playing in 6-man to Class 2A football throughout the 2021 season.
The “Denver Broncos High School Game of the Week” program will visit football games in Wiggins, Limon, Eaton, Merino and Fleming this fall.
Fans attending the games will have the opportunity to meet Denver Broncos Alumni, Denver Broncos Cheerleaders, Miles the Mascot and take photos with the Super Bowl trophies.
All participating schools will also receive a $1,000 equipment grant and a video message from a Broncos player wishing the team best of luck.
Broncos guard Dalton Risner, a Wiggins alumnus, had his jersey retired by the school during a halftime ceremony Thursday night.
“We’re so excited to bring back the ‘High School Game of the Week’ this season and reunite with towns and programs growing the game of football at the high school level,” said Broncos Director of Youth and High School Football Bobby Mestas. “High school football is a big part of the Colorado community, and the Broncos are looking forward to making those games special for players, coaches and fans.”
