Denver Broncos long snapper Casey Kreiter loves football, and science.
Kreiter, who served as a student-teacher while pursing a NFL career, joined the Denver Broncos this season. Now, the Broncos are helping the science teacher connect with his students at Iowa City Regina High School while playing.
The Broncos helped provide the school with a BeamPro robot that Kreiter can use while across the country. The robot allows him to work with students on a STEM (Science, technology, engineering and math) project that’s due in the coming months.
“Some people from the organization reached out and they had already had a STEM initiative in place through the Broncos,” Kreiter told CBS2 Iowa’s Mitch Fick. “So they heard I was a science teacher and wanted to see if I was interested in doing anything. I’ve always said, ‘I love playing football, but I love teaching also.’ ”
This isn’t the first time the Broncos have dabbled with science. In fact, offensive tackle Russell Okung has a series on the team’s website titled “Tech Tuesdays with Russell,” where he goes around and participates in neat activities.
Now, the Broncos are letting Kreiter pursue his dreams on and off the field.
