On Wednesday May 20th, 2020 the Denver Broncos were recognized as finalists for the ESPN’s Sports Humanitarian Team of the Year Award for their work with DPS and Futures Football.
Futures was established in 2008 to help build up football participation in Denver Public Schools. Since its creation in 2008 football participation in DPS has increased anywhere from 25 percent to 60 percent at different schools.
Along with an increase in overall football participation in Denver Public Schools, the Futures Program has helped to produce more competitive DPS teams, state playoff appearances, state championship game appearances and of course Denver Broncos running back Phillip Lindsay.
Denver Public Schools is extremely grateful for all the support that has been provided to our student athletes through the Futures Football Program by the Denver Broncos organization.
