The Denver Broncos, in conjunction with American Family Insurance, are proud to announce the start of the eighth season of Futures Football. Futures, which started with Denver Public Schools in 2008, is a tackle football program for middle school students in both Denver and Aurora Public Schools. Every high school football program in DPS and APS has a corresponding ‘feeder' middle school Futures program coached by the high school football staff.
Each team, made up of 35 student athletes, also participates in a five-week character development course led by local non-profit Project PAVE. Through innovative intervention and prevention education programming, Project PAVE instructors have designed a curriculum specifically for middle school football players that will focus on team values, healthy relationships, character development, positive conflict resolution and other relevant topics.
Each team will play a five week regular season schedule starting on Saturday, March 7, with three weeks of postseason play to follow. Participating teams in Denver Public Schools include: Abraham Lincoln, Denver East, Denver North, Denver South, Denver West, George Washington, John. F. Kennedy, Montbello, Manual and Thomas Jefferson. Participating teams in Aurora include: Aurora Central, Gateway, Hinkley, Rangeview and Vista Peak. All teams will wear Broncos branded team uniforms but in corresponding high school team colors.
As a way to support high school football throughout the state, the Broncos will bring a pre-game tailgate and entertainment to one high school football game per week during the high school season. Tailgate includes autograph opportunities with Broncos alumni, cheerleaders and Miles, photos with the Super Bowl trophies, games and giveaways, sponsor activations and more. 2015 High School Game of the Week Schedule
