A team bound for Super Bowl 48 toured Times Square on Friday, January 31. Quincy and his best friend Marcus were already winners.

The two teens were guests of the Denver Broncos, who face the Seattle Seahawks at Metlife Stadium. The two were identified by the club as the winners, out of 1,400 Boys & Girls Club members.

They have been members of the Denver Broncos Boys & Girls Club in east Denver since they were 6 years-old. “Every day, these boys can be found helping out at the Club,” said club director Rich Barrows. “They are always asking what they can do to give back, and how they can lend a hand. Never do they even ask for a thank you.

“Now we get to give them a heck of a thank you,” Barrows said.

The boys were gifted Denver Broncos jerseys to wear to the big game, as well as hotel accommodations in Times Square and free meals across the Big Apple.

The competition extends beyond Metlife Stadium. Denver Boys & Girls Clubs are competing against the Boys & Girls Clubs of King County, in Seattle to raise funds on Facebook or Twitter. Each hopes to raise $48,000 by Feb. 4, 2014.

If the Mile High clubs win, then Seattle club member will have to wear Broncos orange for a full day. Should the Seattle clubs win, the Denver groups will have to wear Seahawks blue for a day.
