"Drew Lock graciously accepted an invitation to be on the sidelines for a Hinkley High School football game in the upcoming spring season.
Whether or not the Denver Broncos quarterback’s schedule will allow him to actually join the Thunderbirds or not is yet to be seen, but his surprise appearance on a Zoom call with coach T.C. Newland and some of his players Friday afternoon caused a stir.
In a call moderated by Roman Oben, a former Super Bowl-winning NFL lineman and the league’s Vice President of Youth and High School Football Strategy, Lock announced that he and the New Era Cap Company made a $10,000 donation to the Hinkley football program. Lock also shared his personal story of perseverance from playing in high school (Lee’s Summit in Missouri) to the University of Missouri and into the professional ranks."
