COLD SPRING, Minn. (AP) -- A small town in central Minnesota is celebrating Denver Broncos wide receiver Eric Decker.

A standing-room-only crowd gathered Thursday in the Rocori (ruh-KOHR'-ee) High School gymnasium for Eric Decker Day. Decker was a 2005 graduate of the school.

Decker is in his fourth NFL season as a wide receiver with the Broncos. He and his team will take on the Seattle Seahawks in Sunday's Super Bowl.

The St. Cloud Times (http://on.sctimes.com/1ekhzTc ) reports a video shown at the celebration featured coaches and teachers as well as footage from Decker's athletic activities in junior and senior high school. The audience heard a statement that Decker emailed to organizers of the event.
