John Elway named "Man of the Year"

My guy, Hall of Fame quarterback John Elway has been named "Man of the Year" by the Walter Camp Football Foundation.

This prestigious award has been given to some very distinguished people and now Elway is one of them. No surprise there.

Other recipients of this honor include: Roger Staubach, Gale Sayers, Dick Butkus and Morten Andersen. So proud to see our Super Bowl winning QB be among such respected men for their on and off field contributions.

Owner, President and CEO of the Denver Broncos, Pat Bowlen had this to say about our former franchise QB receiving this honor:

“On behalf of the Denver Broncos Football Club, I’d like to congratulate John Elway for receiving this great award. In addition to being the greatest Denver Bronco of all time, John is one of the few who is among the greatest players of all time in both college and pro football. His receiving this accolade from the Walter Camp Football Foundation is an honor well deserved by John for public service and community work that equal his greatness on the field. He has always been generous with his time for a myriad causes that benefit those in need and it is gratifying to me and the entire Broncos organization to see John named for this honor.”

The Walter Camp Football Foundation gives out this award to someone "who has been closely associated with the game of football as a player, coach or close attendant to the game. He must have attained a measure of success and been a leader in his chosen profession. He must have contributed to the public service for the benefit of his community, country and his fellow man. He must have an impeccable reputation for integrity and must be dedicated to our American Heritage and the philosophy of Walter Camp."

That describes Elway to a "T" if I do say so myself.

Congrats to the great #7. You most certainly earned this and I'm proud to be your number one fan.


  1. He is Supermans father!!! lol

  2. He is a class act, really deserves it.

  3. am I the only one to notice how amazing our defense is in the second half? I mean, we do alright in the first half of the game defensivly, but once the second half of the game starts it seems like a switch goes on and our defense turns into a brick wall!!! I love it!!!

  4. They have only let in 10 points in the second half in the entire season. 3 points against the chargers and 7 from the benegals, no one else has scored on us in the second half. Go the Mustard Wall!

  5. Shannon Sharpe, who was part of the Broncos' two Super Bowl wins in the 1990s, will be the lone inductee this December to the Division II Football Hall of Fame, it was announced Thursday.
