Denver — Brian Griese will be the keynote speaker at the 42nd Annual Boy Scouts of America, Denver Area Council Sports Breakfast.
The former NFL quarterback was selected by the Denver Broncos in the third round of the 1998 NFL draft. He earned a Super Bowl ring as a back-up his rookie year and became the starter after John Elway's retirement. Griese also played for the Dolphins, Buccaneers and Bears.
The 2018 program is scheduled for Tuesday, April 10 from 7 a.m. to 9 a.m. at the Pepsi Center.
In addition to Keynote Speaker Brian Griese, managers, administrators, coaches and athletes from surrounding professional and amateur teams are expected to attend. 9NEWS reporter Jeremy Jojola will be the emcee.
The Sports Breakfast is the largest fundraiser each year for the Denver Area Council, serving youth in 10 counties throughout the Denver metro area and nearly 32,000 young people and volunteers.
Youth programs provide an experiential program for young adults to build habits of good character, participatory citizenship and physical fitness.
One hundred percent of proceeds from the Sports Breakfast go directly toward these programs.
