Tebow shines at Broncos scrimmage, fans swoon

Denver Broncos rookie quarterback Tim Tebow stepped into INVESCO Field at Mile High in front of a crowd for the first time Saturday night. Needless to say, the 20,782 fans in attendance (largest number ever to watch a Broncos practice) were not disappointed.

Though the second-string defense was lax and the primary goal of the event was to showcase the offense (head coach Josh McDaniels said he was running “move-the-ball” drills), Tebow scored two touchdowns Saturday night – one through the air and, just as he did with the Florida Gators, another on the ground.

Bringing fans to their feet with a 20-yard pass to wide receiver Matt Willis, Tebow led his offense downfield with two consecutive completions fellow first-rounder WR Demaryius Thomas on the right sideline. His drive ended with a 24-yard touchdown pass to Thomas and a celebratory sprint and chest bump in the endzone.

“To go out there and play in the stadium for the first time was really exciting, and to be able to have a drive and try to run the offense was fun,” Tebow told The Denver Post.

The event ended with the players walking around and signing autographs for fans dangling from the front row. Tebow, as expected, was the most in-demand and stayed as late as the team’s media relations department and security staff allowed.
