When Denver Broncos wide receiver Demaryius Thomas hosted his 2nd Annual Youth Football Camp at Mullen High School in Denver last month, over 250 young athletes eagerly took advantage of the opportunity to learn from the two-time Pro Bowler who also holds the record for most receptions during a single Super Bowl game. Thomas was joined by a coaching staff of 35, all dedicated to teaching the kids and giving them an experience they’ll never forget.
Teammates provided scholarships for aspiring athletes from the Family Resource Center in Denver to attend the camp. The Family Resource Center provides advocacy, capacity building, and resource development to strengthen its statewide network of family resource centers, as they bring help and hope to Colorado families.
This year, for the first time, Teammates is presenting a Good Teammate Award to one camper at each of the Pro Camps they provide scholarships to over the summer. The award is given to a camper in recognition of his or her traits of a TOTAL TEAMMATE: leadership, toughness, unselfishness, and respect for the game and all of its participants. At Thomas’s camp, the Good Teammate Award was presented to Brayden Pedersen, age 14, of Windsor, Colorado.
