COLD SPRING, Minn. (AP) — A small town in central Minnesota is celebrating Denver Broncos wide receiver Eric Decker.
A standing-room-only crowd gathered Thursday in the Rocori High School gymnasium for Eric Decker Day. Decker was a 2005 graduate of the school.
Decker is in his fourth NFL season as a wide receiver with the Broncos. He and his team will take on the Seattle Seahawks in Sunday's Super Bowl.
A video shown at the celebration featured coaches and teachers as well as footage from Decker's athletic activities in junior and senior high school. The audience heard a statement that Decker emailed to organizers of the event.
Rocori activities director Joel Baumgarten says they had 600 Decker t-shirts printed up for people in the community, and they sold out of all of them by Thursday morning. Another 800 are being printed up and will be available at Teal's Market in Cold Spring beginning today.
