Von Miller made history this week, and it had absolutely nothing to do with his play on the field. For the first time ever, a Broncos player asked to attend the team’s annual service recognition day, which is held each year to honor the organization’s employees – the ones who don’t suit up on Sundays.
It had never happened in 18 years until Miller bucked the trend Thursday night. And it was a complete surprise. He took the podium to thank the 200-plus employees – grounds crew members, equipment managers, chefs – for their hard work and dedication to the Broncos.
“We couldn’t do what we do if it weren’t for you,” Miller said. “On behalf of our team, we appreciate all you do.”
