Newly acquired tight end Joel Dreessen is the ultimate local football hero.
He played at Ft. Morgan High School in Ft. Morgan, CO, and then he went on to play at Colorado State before being drafted by the New York Jets in the sixth round of the 2005 draft. The Broncos picked him up as a free agent this off season making him the 11th Bronco to play football in Colorado at the high school, college, and pro level.
The Fort Morgan Times recently did a piece on Dreessen as he prepares to move his family to Denver.
