  • He was gonna be a great one

    I remember when the Broncos drafted him in 2004 out of Oklahoma State, and I was ecstatic. He was one of the best athletes to come out in the draft, and he was going to play for the Broncos.

    Over the next few years I watched him play and develop into a great player. He was a versatile player, being used as a return specialist as well as a defender. As I watched him play, I couldn't help but notice his competitive nature, and coupled with his athleticism, he gained my admiration. I am not so naive to think that my admiration for him was so important, but I do know the rest of Bronco Nation took notice too.

    After hearing of his tragic death, I tried to shake the feelings of despair and depression setting in. How is it that I could feel so badly that someone had died who I had never met? He didn't even know I existed, yet I couldn't shake the feeling. Knowing I will never see him play agian, realizing that I can root for him know longer, thinking that he will never achieve the greatness he was striving for. Those are the reason for my sadness. A tragedy for sure, a loss that makes us all speechless, and his fans are in mourning.

    I only hope that whoever did this does not get away with it, I hope they are punished fully. #27, we will never forget you.

    Following is a quote from Darrent's mother yesterday, and so fitting:

    Williams' mom: Dreams don't have to die with her son


    "He was hardworking, just full of life and big hearted," she said from a suburban Denver hotel room Monday night.

    "All I can say is he did more in his 24 years ... maybe that's why he did so much because he knew his time on Earth was limited,"


    Thanks to Bronco4Life and Medford Bronco for signature

    Rest in Peace - Darrent (27) and Damien (29
