ENGLEWOOD, Colo. – Before the Broncos' Summer Scrimmage on Saturday, local military will have the opportunity to train like the team in a "Military Combine," provided by USAA.
The Broncos will host 50 military members and their guests at Sports Authority Field at Mile High.
The experience includes a personalized locker, posing with the team's Lombardi Trophies and meeting Broncos players.
"USAA's hosting of the Denver Broncos' Military Combine demonstrates USAA's commitment to creating memorable military appreciation experiences through our status as the Official Military Appreciation Sponsor of the NFL and the Denver Broncos," said Russ Arnold, a military affairs representative with USAA and a retired Air Force chief master sergeant. "The participating service members are getting the full NFL treatment, starting from the moment they enter the locker room and see their name above their locker to doing drills and interacting with the Denver players and coaches. It's an experience that only USAA can offer."
Each service member will participate in football drills used by NFL coaches. After the Combine, the participants and their guest will enjoy brunch at the stadium, access to Broncos' Lombardi Trophies for photos, player meet & greets and VIP seats to the team's practice at Sports Authority Field at Mile High.
