— A group of former Denver Broncos players will return to Steamboat Springs on Oct. 31 to take part in an all-star basketball exhibition game that serves as a fundraiser for the Steamboat Springs High School Booster Club.

The Broncos will play a group of local students and community members at 10 a.m. at Steamboat Springs High School. The doors will open at 9 a.m., and admission is $10 for adults and $5 for children.

In addition to the game, there will be concessions, prizes, drawings and a Halloween costume contest judged by the former Broncos for children ages 2 to 12.

There also will be autograph sessions at halftime and after the basketball game.

The event is being put on by the Booster Club. The club did it two years ago and said the event was a success.

Former Broncos expected to attend include Dave Studdard, Mark Jackson, Louie Wright, Ron Egloff and Billy Thompson.
