Town Of Eaton Rallies To Support Denver Broncos Defensive Tackle & Eaton Native Mitch Unrein
When the Broncos take the field on Sunday against the Seahawks, one of Northern Colorado's own will be in the line-up. Mitch Unrein is a graduate of Eaton High School. Earlier this week a a few hundred Eaton residents packed the high school gym in Eaton to wish #96 good luck in the Superbowl. Channel 7 was even there with live coverage.
Mitch was an outstanding athlete at Eaton. He even won a state championship in wrestling. Mitch played football at the University of Wyoming. He was signed by the Houston Texans as an undrafted free agent in 2010. Now he is a local hero with the Denver Broncos.
Even though Mitch is a defensive standout with the Broncos, he has been used by the offense as a secret weapon. Unrein caught a touchdown pass from Peyton Manning on December 2nd, 2012.
