CHSAA offers condolences on the passing of Denver Broncos owner Pat Bowlen

(Jack Eberhard/

The Colorado High School Activities Association, its 365-member schools and their student athletes share the grief of Broncos Nation in the passing of Pat Bowlen, but also want to take a moment to celebrate his life.

His support for Colorado high school football is legendary; that was no more evident than when he helped clear the hurdles necessary for CHSAA and the Colorado Sports Hall of Fame to bring the 4A and 5A Football Championships to Mile High. Without his influence, it might never have happened.

Our condolences to the Bowlen family. Rest in Peace, Mr. B!
