Every time that I go to Broncos training camp, or Fan Fair, there has always been one person I look forward to seeing. As you might have guessed, that person is none other than Brandon Marshall, star wide receiver for the Denver Broncos.
Other than the assumption that he will go out and dominate the defense every time he plays the game, Brandon often doesn't disappoint the fans.
Of course, I will start with the fact that he had an amazing season last year.
My favorite game was the game that he returned from his one game suspension, when the Broncos played the San Diego Chargers for the first time in the '08 season.
Marshall had 18 receptions, three shy of an NFL record for receptions in a game, for 166 yards and 1 touchdown. The Broncos went on to win the game, 39-38.
Though there were other games he did amazing, that was definitely my favorite.
The other reason I can't wait to see him is he is incredibly nice. Every time that my family and I have gone to training camp, he has taken time after practice to sign autographs and take pictures.
I currently have four autographs from him. When I went to Broncos Fan Fair, he stayed after to sign, also, all of this on his own time, but he seems to enjoy it.
My favorite time meeting him was at last year's training camp, when he stayed after practice for about a half-hour by his own choice to sign memorabilia and take pictures.
I will be attending training camp once again this year, and I definitely look forward to seeing my favorite player once again.
Despite the perception that he is a punk, I feel that Brandon is a great player and athlete. I appreciate everything that he does for the fans and the Broncos' organization.
