    • Random fact of the day

      Did you know that the Broncos had a fight song? In 1960, this fight song was featured as a regular part of halftime entertainment in Bears Stadium.

      "The Mighty Bronco March" was composed by contest winner Frank White of Denver. The lyrics were as follows:

      Chorus:
      Hail, Mighty Broncos, Pride of the West
      Like the mountains tow'ring high, over the rest.
      Fight Denver Broncos, Fight for your fame
      Fight Broncos, Fight, Fight, Fight, We'll win this game.

      Verse:
      Yippie, Oh, Ay, Take it boys, go all the way
      Yippie, Ay, Oh Watch the Broncos go
      Yippie Ay, Yippie Ay, The Broncos win today, HEY!

                          I'll go with Rob Lytle

                            WINNER!!! (CP you when I refresh.....maybe I should take a shower???)

                            Rob Lytle was selected by the Denver Broncos in the second round (45th overall pick) of the 1977 NFL Draft. He spent seven seasons in the NFL with the Broncos and rushed for 1,451 yards, caught 61 passes for 562 yards, returned six kickoffs for 99 yards, and scored 14 touchdowns (12 rushing and two receiving). At the end of his rookie season, he scored Denver's sole touchdown in Super Bowl XII. Lytle holds the distinction of being the first to score a touchdown in both a Super Bowl and a Rose Bowl, having scored a TD for The Michigan Wolverines at the January 1/77 classic.
