Broncos Futures Football

Broncos Futures Football was designed to promote the sport of Football in Denver Public Schools. The program was developed with the Denver Broncos as the lead partner in 2008. The first official season began in the Spring of 2009. Since the inception of Futures Football the numbers of participants at the high school level has increased dramatically. Where DPS once had HS programs that struggled to host one level of football now have complete Freshman, JV and Varsity programs. The level of competition has also increased significantly. We now have expectations of seeing our teams in the State Tournament and we have even had one of our teams, Denver South, reach the Finals of the State Championship. We have had well over 3 dozen student/athletes from our Broncos Futures Program accept athletic scholarships to attend college. DPS Athletics is an extremely proud district that began their league in 1903. We dedicate our resources to the betterment of our student/athletes and encourage all of the them to help us build for the FUTURE.

Project PAVE

Each Futures player will also participate in a five-week character development course led by local non-profit Project PAVE. Through innovative intervention and prevention education programming, Project PAVE instructors will teach the ‘True Man’ curriculum which is specifically designed for middle school football players. The curriculum will focus on team values, healthy masculinity, healthy relationships, character development, positive conflict resolution and other relevant topics.
