The Broncos guard looks for "Pancake Blocks." While there's no official definition, an offensive lineman knows when he's made one. The defensive player who's been "pancaked" knows it too.

A Pancake Block is when an offensive lineman makes a great block, then follows up by laying the defensive player on his back and falling on top of him.

This is Zane's second year heading up the "Cakes for Cancer" program. Last year he and his teammates raised $15,000 from Pancake Blocks. So far this year, the Denver linemen have executed 30 Pancake Blocks, which means Zane has donated $7,500 to Brent's Place. He'd like to add a lot more.

Zane doesn't just donate money. He also spends time at Brent's Place and recruits his fellow linemen to do the same. 9News visited Brent's Place while Zane and his teammates decorated cupcakes from D bar Desserts and ate pancakes from Snooze.
