Edited for tense from the USAA's press release --
The Combine represents the evolution of military appreciation events that USAA and the Broncos are creating to foster understanding and appreciation for the local military community. Each service member participated in football drills similar to those used by NFL coaches to evaluate potential talent. Following the Combine, participants and their guest enjoyed brunch at the stadium, access to Broncos' Lombardi Trophies for photos, player meet & greets, and VIP seats to the team's practice at Sports Authority Field.
You can read more on the event at the team's official site --
(Albert) Stoner was one of a few dozen Colorado-based military members to compete in the "Train Like Bronco" USAA Military Combine at Sports Authority Field at Mile High.
"It's awesome," Stoner said of the event. "Very rewarding. We do what we do not expecting the rewards, but when they do stuff like this for us, it's really nice."
Kudos to the Broncos and USAA for giving these servicemen and women such a unique experience, and we extend our thanks to everyone who serves or has served in all branches of the military!
