John’s father, Jack Elway, served as a high school head coach, and later became an assistant NFL coach, and worked at Montana and Washington State Universities. Elway’s childhood depended a lot on his father’s job, as the whole family had to move according to their father’s employment location. However, they spent most of the time in Montana, Washington, and in the San Fernando Valley, where John Elway attended the Granada Hills High School. In school, Elway became interested primarily in football and baseball, even taking part in the Major League Baseball Draft in 1979, and was chosen by the Kansas City Royals. On matriculating from high school, Elway continued his studies at Stanford University, where he had more opportunities to showcase his baseball skills. Once again he entered the MLB Draft in 1981, and was selected by the New York Yankees. However, when he graduated with a degree in economics, he decided to pursue a career in American Football instead, and upon entering the 1983 NFL Draft, was picked by the Baltimore Colts, who then traded him to the Denver Broncos. As a player, John Elway stayed with the Broncos until 1998, when he finished his professional football career, and then returned to the team in 2011 as an Executive Vice President of Football Operations.

From his first season, Elway proved himself to be a skillful football player.

He was an AFC champion five times, NFL MVP in 1987, UPI AFC Player of the Year two times, and was the Super Bowl MVP in 1998. He was selected nine times to the Pro Bowl, a Bronco’s record. At his retirement, he had recorded the most wins ever by a starting quarterback. Later John Elway was inducted into the Denver Broncos Ring of Fame, Colorado Sports Hall of Fame, as well as the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 2004.

In addition to being a professional football player, John Elway did not shy away from business opportunities.
