COLD SPRING -- Cold Spring Mayor Doug Schmitz proclaimed February 11th, 2014 Eric Decker Day at tonight's council meeting.

The NFL wide receiver for the Denver Broncos was unable to accept the award in person. His parents Sue Meyer and Tom Decker received the award on his behalf. Meyer says she's proud of her son.

Tom says Eric appreciates the community's support.

Mayor Schmitz's proclamation encourages all Cold Spring residents to look to Eric Decker as an example of true home town pride. The Cold Spring native helped bring the Broncos to the 2014 Super Bowl.
