Denver Bronco's Offensive Line Coach Mike Munchak, was back in his hometown for the United Way Golf Tournament at the Country Club of Scranton. Former GAR and Lackawanna College Offensive Lineman Mark Glowinski, now starting for the Indianapolis Colts, was also in the tournament.
Both 'Munch' and Mark had family obligations on their mind with training camp just a couple of weeks away.
"Well, family my daughter's family is there. Her husband, they have a daughter, my first grand daughter, this gives us an opportunity to work in the city where my daughter is, my grand daughter is and football usually never lines up that way with the opportunity in the same city where maybe your family is." explained Munchak.
"It's hard to leave Pittsburgh, it's hard to believe I was there five years, I loved it there." Mike answered "They were a great organization and I am going to have another opportunity to work for another great organization."
When you think of the Denver Broncos organization, what comes to mind for you?
"Well, you just said the name there for me, it's Elway." Munchak responded. "We came in the league around the same time, I was '82, he was '83. His long career watching him being in Pro Bowls with him. Unfortunately for me, the memories are me losing playoff games out there as an Oiler, and a Steeler. Like I said, the expect to win they have the winners mentality, that Pittsburgh did. So, looking forward to being part of To this organization and winning a championship with them." Mike concluded.
