  • Billy Van Heusen at the Denver Broncos QB Club: Sat Nov 20th Elways Downtown

    "Billy Van was the best athlete we ever had as a punter!" says Denver Bronco historian and former press secretary Jim Saccomano. And now on November 20th you have the chance to meet Billy Van Heusen in person and hear his stories from his Bronco playing days!

    Billy was an undrafted free agent from Maryland who kicked nine seasons for the Broncos (1968-76), Van Heusen's gross punting average of 41.7 yards per punt over that span ranked seventh overall in the NFL.
    In his nine seasons, he was in pro football's top 10 punters in gross average five times (second in 1968, including the NFL punters, sixth in 1970 and 1971, third in 1973, and ninth in 1974).

    Several times during his career he was a starting wide receiver, and he had 82 career catches for what is still the Broncos record of 20.5 yards per reception. He caught 11 touchdown passes as well. Van Heusen was a threat to run out of punt formation as well, which he did 13 times for 171 yards, a 13.2 average, including a 66-yard touchdown jaunt on a fake punt against the Houston Oilers.
