John Elway, success on and off of the field

There are dozens of truly great athletes to come out of the San Fernando Valley.

One of the many household names is John Elway, who attended Granada Hills High School.

How about naming some ol' comrades that played with John at GHHS.  Chris Sutton, Larry Palmer, Ken Scanlon, Bryan Sherman, Scott Marshall and Paul Scheper, to name a handful.

In this photo, some valley athletes included Chris Duddy, Keith Keller and Jim Ginneti.

 A nice article in the Los Angeles Times by Sam Farmer, outlines some of his most recent accomplishments at the helm of the Denver Broncos in executive management.  Read the article on John Elway HERE.
