Scouting’s highest honor, meet pro football’s highest honor. With the Super Bowl approaching fast and the AFC to be decided today, Jan 24th, 2016 between two very good teams, I thought I’d share these Eagle Scouts and their connections to the Denver Broncos and the New England Patriots.

Did I miss any Eagle Scouts who have appeared in the Super Bowl as a Coach or Player between these teams? Let me know in the comments and I can verify their Eagle Scout status.
