DENVER - Among the 76,000 fans that are expected to be at Sports Authority Field for Sunday's game, a disabled veteran, and die-hard Broncos fan is one of them.

Freddie Sprankel will be going to the game thanks to the organization Learn to Earn USA. A representative gave Sprankel the tickets Friday morning at 9NEWS.

Sprankel plans to take his girlfriend, who is also a big Broncos fan. They got extremely lucky with their seats, which will be on the second level in the end zone and were donated by former Broncos' quarterback Jake Plummer.

While serving in the Army in Iraq, Sprankel suffered a spinal-cord injury. After he returned home, he was in a car accident, which made his injuries even worse. 

Learn to Earn USA trains veterans and their spouses to work in the field of credit and collections.
