AMBER | BRONCOS Fan

Hello,

My family has always loved football. However, in 1998 I was 12 and my brother was 15. He was diagnosed with 2 variations of Leukemia. At the time we lived in Thailand, and they were not prepared to treat his illness. We were born in Denver and my father'a entire family still lived here. We got on a plane and flew home. My parents were unable to work as they were in the hospital day in and day out with Brandon. We therefore lived with my Grandmother while we fought this fight. As things were quite sad football was the one thing we looked forward to every week. There were 9 of us living together and we huddled around in the living room to watch the Broncos. On December 17th my brother received a transplant that saved his life. As you know the Broncos went on to win the Super Bowl a few weeks later. We ran into the streets and took my brother to the parade in a wheel chair and drew a broncos emblem on his bald head. Since then, football and the Broncos have been a member of our family. And as a 12 year old I believed that was our reward for fighting Brandon's fight! Can't wait for football to start on Thursday. Hoping for a different outcome from February :)

America has come together to share our love of football.

Here are your stories.

JEFFREY ALAN | COWBOYS Fan

As we go into week 7 of the 2014 football, season to my coaching buddies remember that your words have power. If you call a kid a meathead or get in his face about something, remember to grab them after practice and explain to them the reason for that. If you need a kid to give you something that they are not giving you show them what you need, don't just assume that they understand because you see it clear as day. 
To me the game of football is...

MICHAEL | COWBOYS Fan

my name is Michael ray. I entered my pee wee football team as a group but am not sure if you guys have the entry.

KADEN DAVID | PACKERS Fan

Kaden is 18 months old a big Packer fan – along with his entire family from Wisconsin to Alaska!
While Kaden may still be little, it’s so neat that he is carrying on the tradition of his Dad, who, sadly passed away unexpectedly when Kaden was 2 months old.
 
Upon a touchdown, his Dad would run around the house and scream and slap everyone’s hands!  Kaden is showing the same excitement, by clapping excessively and throwing his hands up in the...

TEAM 49 IS OUR SCHWARTZ FAMILY LEGACY

SUPER BOWL 49 IS OUR DESTINY

In the 49th year of the 20th century, our Dad and Mom, Raymond Schwartz

11 in the next 14 years. With seven boys and four girls, life at our
house was often a full-contact sport, but with Dad as the Coach and Mom
as General Manager, we were each fully committed to our family team.

Growing up at 49 Ripplewood...

Why I Love Football
By Bill Brown

I love football, not just for the successful play, great run, long pass or amazing catch. I love football because playing the game has taught me, like many others, how to be physically fit, mentally sharp, and an independent player within a working team. I learned to persevere in order to overcome adversity and achieve goals. It taught me how to succeed in life.

Let me share a short story to illustrate exactly...

SAM | GIANTS Fan

GRAHAM | PATRIOTS Fan

My name is Tysen Tresness and I am helping my brother Graham submit his entry. Since Graham started watching football, he overall seems happier. I am now able to connect to him on a fundamentally simpler level than before. People tend to judge Graham based off of his disability, but he is so much more than that. He is a loving, caring individual who is always able to look on the bright side and I truly believe that his love of football has helped him to...
