Several Former Broncos and current NFL Players gathered to take part in the Grid-Iron Dreams Academy Football Camp at East Junior High. The campers were given the opportunity to put on a Boise State Uniform and train with Denver Bronco Matt Paradis, whose team brought home a Super Bowl win, along with Cowboys defensive end Tyrone Crawford.
“It’s what we love to do, you know we were coached a certain way, we were coached to love this game, to give it all to this game, and we’re back passing that on this weekend.” Said Alex Guerrero, the co-founder of Gridiron Dreams.
For the former Broncos, it was an experience to give back, and the chance to further their own football skills in the offseason. They say it was not work at all, but actually fun and inspiring to mold the next generation of football players.
“It’s amazing you know, the friends that we have, and the community out here is awesome. They show a lot of support to us as players and even now in the NFL,” said Cowboys Defensive end Tyrone Crawford.
“When I was growing up we had the Boise State Camp and that was pretty much it… Good to give these kids another opportunity to learn and that’s what we are here for.” Agreed Denver Bronco Matt Paradis.
