It may have been the last hurrah for the Denver Broncos’ 2009-10
season, but it was a moment of extended glory for the Heritage High
School football team.
The Eagles were recognized during halftime of what became the
Broncos’ final game of the season, against Kansas City, Jan. 3 at
Invesco Field at Mile High for having won the Class 4A state
championship football title.
In addition, Heritage coach Mike Griebel was honored with a 2009
Coach of the Year award.
After the championship season, the team’s starting quarterback
and special teams standout, Mitch Griebel, a graduating senior,
received 2009 Player of the Year accolades and was named to the
All-Colorado team with fellow Eagle, senior receiver Shane Opitz.
They both made the All-State team as well.
