Denver Broncos Quarterback Competition Emerges

As owner and personal trainer with Mile High Nutrition and Fitness, Alex Garbiso engages with clients throughout the Aurora, Colorado, community. A sports enthusiast, Alex Garbiso participates in fantasy leagues and is a supporter of the Colorado Avalanche and Denver Broncos.

As reported in ESPN, one key aspect of the Broncos offseason program is a mandatory minicamp that allows players to compete for slots on the team. With the team having achieved greatness under John Elway and Peyton Manning, the quarterback is central to the Broncos’ legacy and a key competition is between Paxton Lynch and Trevor Siemian.

Joking that he is “putting gum in Lynch’s shoes” to make him late for practice, Siemian emphasized that both he and his fellow quarterback are young and supportive of each other. With both players in good health and with excellent form for the early offseason, the Broncos are in the enviable position of having two excellent starting quarterback candidates to choose from.

Denver Broncos Draft Offensive Tackle Garett Bolles

A former Junior A hockey player, Alexander "Alex" Garbiso is an Onnit-certified trainer and the owner of Mile High Nutrition and Fitness. When he isn't helping clients reach their health goals, Alex Garbiso enjoys following his favorite National Football League (NFL) team, the Denver Broncos.

Seeking to improve its offensive line, the Broncos drafted offensive tackle Garett Bolles with the 20th overall pick in the 2017 NFL Draft. Last season, Denver gave up the ninth-most quarterback sacks (40) in the 32-team league, and the addition of Bolles should greatly improve the team's ability to protect its quarterback. The 24-year-old was an elite run blocker at the University of Utah and is expected to start on the left side for the Broncos, while Menelik Watson and Donald Stephenson will battle for playing time on the right side.

A former five-star college recruit, Bolles completed the 40-yard dash at the NFL combine in just 4.95 seconds, which is impressive given his 6-foot-5, 297-pound frame. He started 13 games for Utah in 2016 and earned First-team All-Conference honors.
