Athlete of the Week: Shayne Hagin

Shayne Hagin was diagnosed with autism at the age of three, but that did not stop him from wanting to be a member of the Denver Broncos. This past week Hagin joined the team at training camp in dove valley.

He is this week’s athlete of the week.

This past week Shayne Hagin dreams of being a Bronco came true out on the field.

More than a month ago Shayne’s fathers Tim put a post on social media asking for help to get Shayne to Broncos training camp. Just a few weeks later that dream was answered when the organization reached out to the Hagin's and invited Shayne to training camp.

For Shayne the time he spent at dove valley and the people he met along the way is something he will never forget.

One of the players Shayne has loved since he first was drafted by the Broncos was Von Miller. He even had the chance to share some of his dance moves with number 58 on the field.

The smile on Shayne’s face the moment he saw Von made his family feel truly blessed according to his father Tim Hagin.

“It makes me feel proud. You know I’m a man of my word and I told my son that I would do what I could. And I said you know what I’m going to try this. I am going to give it a shot and I did. And this is where it has ended up”, said Hagin.
