Gary Kubiak reflects on 9/11 attacks


ENGLEWOOD, Colo. – Friday, September 11, 2015 marks 14 years since the 9/11 terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center in New York City and the Pentagon in Arlington, Virginia.

Following the completion of Friday's practice, Head Coach Gary Kubiak met with the media and reflected on the day of the attacks. At the time, Kubiak was the Offensive Coordinator and Quarterbacks Coach during his first stint with the Denver Broncos.

"I walked into this office that morning and I sat down," said Kubiak, "We had just played the Giants the night before – (and I) walked in this office, sat at my desk and (Tight Ends) Coach (Brian) Pariani's office was the one right next to me and I was doing something and I heard him start hollering down the halls. I remember that day vividly and you just pray for all those families."

Like many Americans, Kubiak still remembers the day it happened and took time today to remember those who perished.

"I think our country does a great job of acknowledging the situation each and every year," Kubiak said. "I sat and watched some at my office before I came to practice…. We'll always remember them."
