Clady, others host Hometown Huddle at stadium


DENVER --** Ryan Clady has been in his fair share of huddles.

But Tuesday night, he was in a huddle unlike any other.

"They were interesting a little bit," he said with a smile. "A little loud when it comes to picking if we're going to be rock, paper or scissors. It's fun though. It's a good time out here."

Of course, Clady was talking about the Broncos' Hometown Huddle, where 350 kids from Boys and Girls Clubs of Metro Denver and seven Broncos players at Sports Authority Field at Mile High for a night of fun activities.

Ryan Clady, Malik Jackson and five other Broncos joined kids from Denver's Boys and Girls Clubs for a night of fun at Sports Authority Field at Mile High.

"A lot of these kids probably never get to come on the field or what not -- just see it on TV or maybe come to the game -- so it's pretty cool for them to come down here to be able to see our perspective," Clady said.

Clady, Malik Jackson, Brandon Marshall, Virgil Green, Ben Garland, Nathan Palmer and Dominique Jones led kids through an endless amalgam of games that featured elements of football, rock-paper-scissors, tag and more with just the right amount of chaos. Kids were featured on the Thundervision big screen while playing.

"Just to have the opportunity to come out here and play with these kids, take a little time out of the day and makes their day better, it makes my day better," Jackson said.

The event was held in collaboration with Mile High United Way, Playworks and the American Heart Association and the activities were aligned with the NFL Play 60 campaign, which encourages kids to get at least 60 minutes of physical activity each day.

"As a kid I was real active," Clady said. "I was outside playing basketball, football, a little bit of baseball, just something to get outside, ride bikes or what not."

"You can't sit around and play video games all day."

The event is just one of several Play 60 events the Broncos will be involved with this year, including the Fall Kickoff to Play 60 that was held in early September.
