Children's Hospital Colorado's jr. reporter: 'Coolest thing I have done in my life!'


Hello, readers. I want to tell you about an opportunity I had to interview Denver Broncos linebacker, Brandon Marshall.

On the morning of November 8th I went to interview a Broncos player. When I arrived I didn't know who it was going to be, but I was very excited. I went with my CASA, Janeth Gains. When we got there I was introduced to a man and two women who worked for the Broncos. They gave me a gift bag filled with Broncos gear including a cap, flag, mini helmet and a Broncos media guide.


Before I conducted the interview they took me on a tour. A man that said his nickname was "The Junk Yard Dog"showed me the classrooms and the quarterback meeting room. After that part of the tour we went into the cafeteria. It was GINORMOUS! Then we went back to the main lobby and waited for the player I would interview.

I was so excited because I got to interview my mom's favorite player, Brandon Marshall! I asked Marshall what his favorite video game was and he said Madden. I think that makes sense, considering it's a football game. I like playing Madden too. He also said that the best part of playing football is winning. He has played professional football for the Jaguars and the Broncos but he has been playing football since he was 8. The Broncos are my favorite football team and I try not to miss watching a game. When Marshall was a kid he liked watching the Broncos too. He likes hip-hop music and his favorite song is "He got game." He likes cheetahs because they are fast and he needs to be fast as a linebacker.

I asked him if he had any challenges in his life that he had to overcome and he told me that when he was a kid he and his family had to stay at a shelter for a while. He said that his advice to kids who want to be a professional athlete when they grow up is to work hard and never give up. Overall, meeting Marshall and touring the practice facility was the coolest thing I have done in my life.
