A Heritage Trivia Game

I seen comments that suggest that our beloved Broncos heritage has been, at best overlooked/at worst totally dissed, in recent weeks.  With that in mind, I'm setting out a small Broncos Heritage Trivia Game.  

There are two prizes: (1)The satisfaction from being a veteran fan who can share the heritage, (2)The satisfaction that comes from knowing a bit more about our heritage than you knew before.

***Disclaimer -- this is not an MHR officially sponsored game, so you're on your own in deciding which prize is yours.

***Hint for Broncos neophytes:  Many of the answers can be found in the following places:

Wikipedia.com

Pro-football-reference.com

Our many veteran La La Landers

Our many veteran Neigh-sayers (

***Disclaimer 2: This term is not intended to be derogatory. It is the basic word in the vocabulary of our beloved totem animal, and I felt it's use was a better way to denote those who are just as ardent and devoted Broncos fans as any La La Lander, but who are not particularly fond of the current coach.  Plus I refuse to use terms like "hater" "doom and gloom" and I'm really really tired of typing "Those who do not wish to reside in La La Land."

On to the Game:

For each of the following names, discover and post the following information:

1. The player's position

2. The year the player was drafted (and by whom)

3.The number of years the player wore a Broncos jersey

4. What does the player have in common with the other players (note: they played for the Broncos is NOT the answer and it should be a gimme)

5. A noteable trivia fact regarding the player.

A. Goose Gonsoulin

B. Floyd Little

C. Lionel Taylor

D. Rich Jackson

E. Charley Johnson

F. Frank Tripucka
