The Denver Broncos, in partnership with the Colorado High School Activities Association, are hosting an inaugural High School Football Media day on Friday, August 17 at 1 p.m., in the Pat Bowlen Fieldhouse at the UCHealth Training Center in Englewood.

A total of 20 teams will be in attendance. Initially invited teams include the 2017 semifinalists in 5A, 4A and 3A, as well as the state finalists in 2A, 1A, 8-man and 6-man. A final list of teams attending will be available next week.

CHSAA commissioner Rhonda Blanford-Green and CHSAA assistant commissioner Bud Ozzello will be available for interviews, as well.

The event will provide sports media members with a one-stop shop to visit with the top programs. Teams will be in attendance wearing their game jerseys, and will be available for interviews, including both time on the podium and one-on-one opportunities.

Teams will rotate through other breakouts during the day: a Media Relations 101 session with the Broncos Public Relations staff, including education on how social media can positively and negatively impact their reputation and high school experience; a photography session with professional photographers who will take head shots and group shots of all players and coaches; as well as a facility tour.

Further information will be available next week.
