Broncos surprise teammate, replace items lost in fire

A number of Ben Garland's Denver Broncos teammates stepped up to replace several valuable items from his college days lost when his grandparents' house burned in the Colorado wildfires.

Garland, an Air Force Academy graduate, was presented with two silver sabers, commemorating his graduation from the service academy as well as an Air Force football helmet. Those items were lost in the fire, according to the Associated Press.

"Thank you guys, it means the world to me and my family," Garland, a defensive tackle, said. "That's one of the biggest things my grandma and my grandpa were sad about losing."

Linebacker Joe Mays said the Broncos wanted to do something for Garland and his grandparents.

"We're glad that we could do something to put a smile on his and his grandparents' faces," Mays said. "He's a great guy, an awesome guy, a great player. You want to do special things like that for a person such as Ben. The personality that he has, he always comes to work eager and willing to get better. He's an awesome human being as a whole and I'm just glad we were able to get him something."
