George Paton explained why.
Zac Stevens was born and raised in Denver, went to the University of Denver and now covers the Denver Broncos.
After graduating Summa Cum Laude from DU in 2014, Zac worked for the Cleveland Browns as a remote scout. He then jumped straight into the journalism industry at the beginning of 2016 covering the reigning world-champion Broncos and joined DNVR soon after.
