Several Broncos players took the time to show their appreciation for their mothers’ roles in their lives. In celebration of Mother’s Day, here are some thoughts from players on their moms:
Linebacker Von Miller
“My mom has never ever missed anything I have ever participated in, whether it be an assembly at school or at track meet out in Miami or a football game up in Oakland—or wherever. My mom has never missed anything I have been a part of. I think that’s what makes my mom different from a lot of moms and that’s what makes her special to me.”
Tight End Jacob Tamme
“I’ll go back and see (my mother) this Mother’s Day, actually. With my wife being a mother now, that’s the one you always forget about. You always think of your mom, then you have a small kid and now your wife’s a mom, too. That’s a big deal. You can’t forget about that one (laughing). I’m with you. It’s a big deal. You gain an appreciation for it the more you see what your wife does. You think you’re working hard, but you spend a few days at home and you see what it’s like.”
Tight End Joel Dreessen
“My mom rocks. I was the youngest of three kids so she let me get by with a little bit more. It was funny, I don’t know why I’m telling you all this story but I remember my senior year in high school I got a speeding ticket and she helped keep it a secret from my dad. She paid it. She said, ‘Alright, we won’t tell your dad.’ I don’t know why that story came to mind.
“I remember in high school she was a nurse so she would have to be to work by 7 a.m. So she would even get up extra early and take me to the weight room at 6:15 in the morning. Instead of making me ride the bus to school she got up early so I could go into the school early and workout. They never made me have a summer job; they always let me focus on athletics. A couple summers I did have a job but they always really let me focus on being an athlete. So I owe a lot to my mother, that’s for sure.”
Love this women… Can’t say enough about her… Can’t wait til that day… Happy Mother’s Day mom… twitter.com/DemaryiusT/sta…
