Several of Ben Garland's teammates gathered around him after the Denver Broncos' practice Tuesday morning and gave him two replacement silver sabers he received upon graduating from the Air Force Academy, along with a Falcons football helmet.

The originals were lost in the wildfire that destroyed his grandparents' home in Colorado Springs this summer.

He was presented with the shiny swords by William "T" Thompson of the Association of Graduates at the U.S. Air Force Academy. Then, linebacker Joe Mays gave him a new college helmet, white with a blue lightning bolt.

Mays said the Broncos (No. 10 in the AP Pro32) wanted to do something for Garland after all he went through.
