While many matchups in the final rounds went down to the final minutes of voting, Elway was a different story. 

Going up against some of the best players in state history in their respective sports, he still breezed through the field in every round on his way to the crown.

On average, the new king of Colorado won each matchup with a dominating 80 percent share of the votes. 

During his run, Elway knocked off legendary athletes Byron Beck, Becky Hammon, Amy Van Dyken, Chauncey Billups, Joe Sakic and finally, former teammate Terrell Davis. 

After all of that, No. 7 is the undisputed favorite Colorado athlete of all time.
