DenverBroncosENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) — Former coach Dan Reeves has been elected into the Denver Broncos’ Ring of Fame along with former halfback/kicker Gene Mingo and returner/receiver Rick Upchurch.

They will be inducted at halftime of the Broncos’ Sept. 14 game against Kansas City at Sports Authority Field.

This is the most inductions in a single year since 1988 when quarterback Craig Morton, wide receiver Haven Moses and kicker Jim Turner were elected.

Team owner Pat Bowlen created the Ring of Fame, which is displayed on the fifth level facade of the stadium, in 1984 to honor former players and administrators who played significant roles in the franchise’s history. There are 27 Ring of Famers including this year’s inductees.
