Andrew Beck

Andrew Beck (Fullback)

Since joining the Broncos, Beck's military outreach spanned the following organizations: America's Gold Star Families, Buckley Air Force Base, Fort Carson Army Base, TAPS, USO Denver, VA Eastern Colorado Health Care System and Volunteers of America: Colorado. For Beck, the military has been a key part of his life for as long as he remembers because his father Chris, was a colonel in the U.S. Army. After a visit to the local VA Hospital in 2019 to meet with veterans receiving medical care, Beck decided to start a program called "Beck's Bags", helping veterans in the community. He then helped the team host a military care packaging event, where 50 players assisted with assembling 200 care packages for homeless veterans in our community ahead of the holidays. This offseason, Beck was slated to be a featured player on the annual NFL USO Tour, before it was cancelled due to COVID-19. Beck knows firsthand the sacrifices military families make to serve our nation, which is why he's chosen to represent America's Gold Star Families for My Cause My Cleats the past two seasons. Last year, Beck auctioned off his cleats and raised funds to sponsor America's Gold Star Families annual 5K Run/1 Mile Walk for Fallen Heroes. This year, Beck will host a design contest for kids served by the nonprofit, ultimately choosing one of their designs to showcase on his cleats during the Week 13 My Cause My Cleats game. During his first season with the team, Beck's military outreach reached more than 300 military families.
