The Denver Broncos look like the team to beat in the AFC despite the four-game suspension to Von Miller to start the season and the losses to first and second string centers J.D Walton and Dan Koppen. Former Oregon State Beaver and San Diego State Aztec, Ryan Katz, joined Chad on Flight 750 Monday to talk about the first week of Broncos’ training camp.Katz first talked about what it’s like to join a team where the expectations are so high.
“As a player, it’s what you want. Every year you want to come out and do your best and you want to win a championship. That’s the ultimate goal. I think all the guys here have really bought into that and really understood that.”
Katz also talked about what it’s like to be able to learn from quarterback Peyton Manning.
“He’s just in the film room all the time. Everything is ball with him. Every second of the day whether it’s walk-though, whether it’s down time. I mean he’s grabbing receivers talking scenarios – things that might not even come up during the year. But you know, he’s talking about it just in case it does come up, everyone’s prepared and ready to go.”
And finally Katz addressed his benching at Oregon State and how it helped him become the player that he is today.
“My heart and everything was at Oregon State and I gave my all there. Unfortunately it didn’t work out, but it just teaches you how to grow. The ball doesn’t always bounce in your favor and you’ve just got to keep rolling with the punches and keep it going. So that’s what I did and that’s what I’m going to continue to do in life.”
