The Denver Broncos took their training camp practice to Broncos Stadium at Mile High on Saturday for the first time since 2014. With 21,234 Broncomaniacs in attendance, it turned out to be an exciting day for both fans and all of the new faces on the team this season.
Mile High Report’s lead photographer, Casey Barrett, was on hand to capture the days’ events. If you weren’t able to attend, this photo gallery might be the next best thing.
As for the practice session, Head Coach Vic Fangio liked the turnout and thought the entire day was good for everyone.
“It was good,” Fangio said. “I think it was good for everybody. I hope the fans enjoyed it. I think we had a pretty good crowd here. I don’t know what you’ve gotten in the past, but it was good. I think it was good for the players, good for the coaches, good for everybody. It was all positive.”
The player who had the most fun in front of the 20,000 fans might have been Chris Harris Jr. who received the loudest ovation from fans of all the players. Hopefully John Elway was there to hear it too, because this man should get one more extension to finish out a majority of his career in Denver.
Overall, the day was a good one. You can tell fans are feeling more hyped about this season than any of the previous two seasons. The team has a long way to go to prove they will turn things around this season, but the vibe certainly feels different than it has in recent years.
