Example text

My father left on good terms with Ralston, who showed he had no hard feelings when he hired my older brother, Dave, fresh out of the Army, to be the Broncos’ assistant director of public relations. So I still had a family connection to the Broncos as the ’76 season unfolded. That fall, in my final semester before graduating, I decided I was going to try sportswriting as a profession for a couple of years, salt away some money, and then perhaps go to law school. The News didn’t have a full-time job available, but Dick Connor, the assistant sports editor at the Denver Post, let me know they were about to add a writer, and maybe even two, and invited me to apply.

In ’77:Denver, the Broncos, and a Coming of Age, Terry Frei gives us a unique view of what that team and this city were like. He gives us insight into the diverse group of people that turned that team around. There were many personalities and characters, but there were two people in particular who saved or reinvented their careers. Head Coach Red Miller was a career assistant coach. Long overdue for a promotion, he finally got an opportunity to become a head coach and wasn’t about to waste it. He was the perfect choice after the controversial way John Ralston lost the job.

2. Dave went on to be one of two men (with Dave Winfield) to be drafted by NFL, NBA, and major-league baseball teams; was an All-American end at Colorado; and had a long NFL career. He is the state’s top high school football coach, the Broncos’ longtime radio play-by-play man and a commercial spokesman for a local bank. I always have told him he could have been a major-league outfielder if he had treated baseball as anything other than a diversion. 3. The new Hyatt Convention Center is on the former Post site.
