Denver Broncos kicker Matt Prater‘s two field goals in week fourteen against the Chicago Bears last season were named the Denver Sports’ Top Moment of 2011 on Thursday night during a red carpet awards show at the Ellie Caulkins Opera House at the Denver Center for the Performing Arts.  Denver’s Punter, Britton Colquitt accepted the award for Prater.

Denver Sports is the non-profit organization charged with bringing sporting events to Denver.  The goal of the Top9 awards is to honor, recognize and celebrate the best sports moments that we know and more importantly don’t know in Colorado.

Congrats to Prater, the award was well-deserved! Here’s to many more game-winning kicks down the road.

    I mean, it’s cool and all, but…

    The KICKER won the best SPORTS moment in Denver in 2011? Really??!

     Not sure what the other nominations were… but they were some long field goals.

    I read Fatsis’ “A Few Seconds of Panic,” so I feel I can better appreciate the mental hurdles and focus it took Prater to perform in those moments. And I guess the award does represent a sports “moment”, not performance over all.

    My point is that the least athletic person on the Broncos’ squad won the award for best sports moment in all of Denver sports, and that just feels weird.

    That’s a huge smack on Prater calling him the least athletic on the team.

     I personally think Lonnie Paxton is the least athletic person on the team.  But he did snap the balls for Prater, why doesn’t he get to share the award?

    Agreed.  It’s gotta be the Pitt game.

     Who ever said he doesn’t get to share the award?
