Reeves went on to say, “If I could cry, if it wasn’t a sissy to be a crier, I’d by crying. But it’s just an honor. You get the hair on the back of your neck kind of raises up. It’s just unbelievable … without question it’s the greatest honor I’ve had in pro football.”

Reeves coached the Denver Broncos from 1981-92, where he compiled a 110-73-1 record and led the Broncos to a franchise-best five division titles and three Super Bowl appearances (1986-87, `89), all ending in losses. Due to his clashes with his star QB, John Elway, is ultimately what led to his dismissal after a disappointing 1992 season.
