When Broncos fans think about touchdown celebrations, one stands out above the crowd - the Mile High Salute® .
Popularized by Ring-of-Famer Terrell Davis during his Broncos playing days from 1995-2002, it has since been continued on by players ranging from Mike Anderson to Mike Bell to Peyton Hillis, and countless others along the way.
The military-style salute is given to fans and teammates in celebration, typically standing in the end zone. Fans got used to the sight on the team's run to back-to-back Super Bowls, when Davis frequently saluted the crowd after scoring plays.
Now it has become just as much a part of Broncos lore as Mile High Magic and "The Drive," and the celebration can still be spotted today, both on the field and in the crowd.
