ENGLEWOOD, Colo. — Growing up, Case Keenum ate, breathed and slept all things football, all the time.
Born in 1988, Keenum had no choice but to be around the game for two simple reasons. First, his father, Steve, was a former offensive lineman who later became a football coach. Second, he lived in the football capital of the world: Texas.
But Casey, as he was called before changing it to Case in third grade, quickly developed a component that’s been key to carrying him to the place where he’s at today—becoming the Denver Broncos’ starting quarterback, and oh, by the way, making $36 million in the process.
