Former Ute Garett Bolles’ taps into his past to help kids in trouble

Denver Broncos offensive tackle Garett Bolles has been nominated for the Walter Payton Award. This nomination comes as a result of Bolles’ dedication to working with at-risk youth and his commitment to his community. Throughout his career, Bolles has demonstrated a strong presence in both Denver and his home state of Utah. His work with at-risk youth has earned him recognition as the Broncos’ nominee for the NFL’s 2023 Walter Payton Man of the Year Award.

Bolles’ journey to this nomination has been shaped by his own experiences as an at-risk youth. At the age of 19, he was kicked out of his home and faced personal challenges. However, with the support of others, including local couple Greg and Emily Freeman, who took him into their home, Bolles was able to overcome these obstacles and pursue a career in football. It is these experiences that have inspired Bolles to give back and support young people facing similar struggles. Since 2020, he has been involved in mentoring over 100 kids and teenagers who are involved with the juvenile justice system in Arapahoe County, Colorado.

Bolles has not only dedicated his time to mentoring these individuals but has also contributed to programs that empower youth with learning disabilities in Colorado and Utah through his GB3 Foundation. His commitment to the community and the impact he has had on at-risk youth is why he has been selected as the Broncos’ nominee for this prestigious award.

The Walter Payton Man of the Year Award recognizes NFL players for their outstanding community service and commitment to making a positive impact off the field. Bolles’ work exemplifies the principles of this award, and his dedication to supporting at-risk youth has made a significant difference in the lives of many young people.

In addition to his on-field accomplishments, including being selected as a first-round draft pick in 2017, Bolles’ nomination for the Walter Payton Award underscores the impact that athletes can have in their communities and the importance of using their platform to make a difference. By leveraging his personal experiences and success in the NFL, Bolles has been able to positively influence the lives of at-risk youth and inspire others to do the same.
