Sertoman of the Day:  The birth of Carl Duncan in 1930, like Fred Downs, ushered in the Great Depression. Carl’s parents were school teachers who maintained employment during this era in small rural schools. They met and were married in Burlington. Carl was born in 1930 in Alamosa and 2 weeks later, the family moved to Cortez, CO. and was there his first 6 years of his life. The family moved to the coal mining community of Oak Creek in 1936 where the main form of entertainment was tackle football with or without pads.

In 1940 they relocated to Avondale, a gentle farm community 15 miles east of Pueblo on the Arkansas River where the main form of entertainment was softball. Carl mentioned that per capital, Avondale is the murder capital of the U.S. with 2 murders and a population of 350. In playing softball, Carl’s first painful learning experience was to catch a fly ball with the hands rather than in the chest like a football. Duncan obtained a BA degree from the Univ. of Colorado and was drafted during the Korean War into the 101st Air Borne, was a Company Clerk and was sent to Germany because he could speak the language. He had 5 months of heavy weapon training but ended up playing the French Horn in the band.

Carl recovered from the warped mentality instilled by the liberals at CU and obtained an MBA degree form DU and became a CPA, using the GI bill. In 1962 he settled in Denver and was unleashed as a CPA on an unsuspecting public. Carl was brought into the club June 2003 by Steve Bolyard. Carl was married in 1957 to ?? (he never says) they have 3 kids and 8 G-kids. Listen to Carl Duncan.mp3

Program:   Doug Harder introduced an old friend of this, Derek Thomas. Derek gave a little background on himself and how he had been to the old and new stadium since he was a kid.

Broncos Career Highlights: During Derek’s tenure with the Denver Broncos, he has experienced the unveiling of new team uniforms and logo change, winning Super Bowl XXXII, campaigning for a new stadium, winning Super Bowl XXXIII, watching John Elway retire a champion and Super Bowl MVP, the building of INVESCO Field at Mile High, watching the demolition of Mile High Stadium, John Elway’s induction into the Pro Football Hall of Fame and the first playoff games at INVESCO Field at Mile High. Derek started his career with the Denver Broncos in 1996 in the ticket office and then made the move to marketing and corporate sales in 2002.
As the Manager of Marketing Partnerships/Corporate Sales he works on what he enjoys the most about his position, relationship building. “I enjoy working with a vast array of great companies to develop exciting opportunities and grow mutually beneficial partnerships.” Derek and his wife are proud to be Denver natives and have been clad in Broncos Orange and Blue since birth and are excited to raise their family (sons Max and Leo and daughter Tessa) in Broncos Country.
Before joining the Denver Broncos Derek also worked for the 1996 Summer Olympics in Atlanta and the Athletic Department at the University of Northern Colorado.
Derek received his BA from the University of Colorado and a Masters in Sports Administration from the University of Northern Colorado. Derek Thomas.mp3
