As the University of Denver Men’s Lacrosse team got set to wrap up their final practice before departing for the NCAA Final Four, a surprise visitor stepped onto the field to address the team.
Broncos wide receiver Wes Welker visited Peter Barton Lacrosse Stadium to address the Pioneers squad that will take on Syracuse at 2 p.m. CDT in Indianapolis on Saturday at Lincoln Financial Field in Philadelphia. Denver overcame a six-goal deficit to become the first team in men’s lacrosse championship quarterfinal history to win after trailing by five goals or more.
