The Morning Blitz

Episode 3 – Blitz Podcast | Nate Solder Interview

In episode #3 of the Blitz Podcast, Ronnie K sits down with former Buena Vista Demon, Colorado Buffalo and now Super Bowl Champion with the New England Patriots, Nate Solder.

Solder hosts a kids football camp for youth yearly and returns to his roots and will headline a one-day football camp on the very fields where he played his high school football.

The “2017 Buena Vista Football Camp” will be broken down into two three-hour sessions: the morning runs from 8-11 a.m. for those entering the third-through sixth grades this fall, with the afternoon camp set for 12-3 p.m. for those entering the seventh-through 12th grades.  All positions and skill levels are welcome.

Solder will be joined by several players, including Connor McDermott, Brian Stork and Ryan Wendell, teammates from the Patriots, along with a few other NFL stars from the Denver Broncos, Carolina Panthers and New York Jets.  A few former CU teammates will also be participating, including Scotty McKnight, Ryan Miller, Jason Brace, Eric Lawson and Keenan Stevens.

Proceeds will be put toward the Johnson’s All-Heart Award, which is given to a Colorado high school assistant coach that is not only involved with kids during sports, but also invests time outside the season of sports in helping develop successful young adults.  It is presented in the name of the Johnson Family, of which five members died in September 2013 in a rock and mudslide about 8 miles from Buena Vista.  The parents, Dwayne and Dawna Johnson, were both coaches at BVHS; they lost a daughter and two nieces but were survived by daughter Gracie and son Dakota.
