Denver’s favorite football team is on its way to Super Bowl 50,
and Broncomania is sweeping the nation!
Here are some entertaining pictures of Broncomania at its finest,
and we’ve included some lesser-known facts about the team’s players that might just bring out the Broncomaniac in you!
Safety David Bruton worked as a substitute teacher in his hometown of Miamisburg, Ohio, during the 2011 offseason. Now he has started the David Bruton Jr. Foundation and Bruton’s Books. His mission is to help low-income children in grades K-3 become strong readers through tutoring and by providing books to underfunded schools, libraries, and classrooms.
Cornerback Omar Bolden has an active online presence through his website and social media. Omar honors those that contribute to their community, and gives Positive Living Awards to people that make a difference. He also designs and sells elastic bracelets to promote the benefits of optimistic thinking through Positive Living. To quote Omar, “The Positive Living wristband is an everyday reminder that with a positive mindset and attitude, positive results transpire. Enjoy life and love life. Remember the blessings you have been given so that you can be a blessing to others.” Learn more about Omar here: www.omarcbolden.com/positive-living-wristbands/
Cornerback Chris Harris Jr. lettered in basketball and track and was a member of the academic state champion teams during his final two prep seasons. Chris has started the Chris Harris Jr. Foundation as a way of helping kids rise above their circumstances and strive for greatness. He has also created the “Underdog” Football Academy, to work with, motivate, and positively inspire youths.
Von Miller started Von’s Vision, a foundation dedicated to providing eye care, glasses and contact lenses to underprivileged youth.
DeMarcus Ware was the first in his family to graduate from college, and earned a degree in business information systems. Ware intends to go into business once his days on the field are behind him. He has plans to create a shirt that improves posture and change the dynamics about how shoulder pads are made by customizing them to the player. Ware has recently been honored by local Denver artist, Gamma Acosta, as shown in picture below.
Running back Ronnie Hillman played on a youth football team in Los Angeles coached by rapper Snoop Dogg…
…which is just a fun fact that we had to share!
Peyton Manning has been a very humble, all around good deed doer for over 15 years, and has a list of contributions that can fill this page. Aside from having a longtime commitment to the Peyton Manning Children’s Hospital in Indianapolis, his PeyBack Foundation’s $4.3 million distribution included $800,000 to 147 youth organizations and $100,000 to child-advocate programs representing abused children. Every year he provides 800 Thanksgiving meals to needy families and awards $40,000 in college scholarships. Mr. Manning has traveled to meet fans, had cancer patients flown to Denver to see Broncos games, handwritten responding letters to countless fans,
and the list goes on…
LUX.Denver would like to thank the Denver Broncos for being a positive inspiration both on and off the field.
We’ll see you at Super Bowl 50!
