A Douglas County deputy among several injured in the ambush attack that left his fellow Deputy Zackari Parrish dead received quite the gift from the Broncos organization.

Four deputies were sent to the hospital in all and three have already left. But not the son of Boulder County's sheriff, Jeff Pelle.

Pelle was given a signed football from John Elway, Broncos mega-star and current head coach Vance Joseph - which would be incredible for anyone to receive.

But while Pelle thanked the men on Twitter, it was Elway who brushed the gratitude aside.

"Thanks for all that you & @dcsheriff do for us, Jeff," he wrote on the social media platform. "Get well soon!!"

This would appear to be a great gift for Pelle, who only has six words in his Twitter bio: "God, Family, Gym, Broncos and Buckeyes," it reads.

This isn't the first nice thing that the Broncos have done for the deputy: back on January 9, he got a visit from long snapper Casey Kreiter.

The three other injured deputies were released a few days after the December 30 shooting - but Pelle has been in recovery for almost two weeks now.

Multiple agencies responded to a disturbance in Highlands Ranch that Saturday, including Pelle and fallen deputy Parrish. When they went inside the gunman fired off over 100 rounds at the officers, injuring four and killing one.
