A.J. Pierce, Jordan Clayton, Rudy Trijo, Robert Knight and Mary Lopez continued their annual tradition of lining up to be the first fans in for the Broncos’ opening practice of training camp.
The group arrived to the team’s training facilities at 3 a.m., as they do each year. While several hundred other fans tailgated in the parking lot, Pierce, Clayton, Trijo, Knight and Lopez patiently awaited the 7:50 a.m. opening of the gates.
“We just wanted to keep the tradition rolling,” Pierce said. “It’s exciting. It’s a fun environment and a good atmosphere. We come to several practices each camp.”
While the group is eager to get a look at the rookies, they are most excited to see their favorite veteran players.
“Probably (Brian) Dawkins or Champ Bailey,” Pierce said. “Also, Von Miller – he is going to be a beast.”
The team has 18 practices scheduled –- all of which will be free and open to the public.
