On Sept. 6, I got the chance to visit the Broncos' facility. It was so cool. I got to see all the trophies, meeting rooms, weight room, practice field and cafeteria. After the tour, inside linebacker Alex Singleton came out to meet me and I got to ask him some questions.

I got a gift bag that had a lot of merch in it. Alex signed my jersey and mini-football helmet. We took lots of pictures and then it was time to go. I will never forget the Broncos' facility and Alex Singleton. Thank you for the experience!
