COLD SPRING, Minn. (AP) - A small town in central Minnesota is celebrating Denver Broncos wide receiver Eric Decker. A standing-room-only crowd gathered Thursday in the Rocori High School gymnasium for Eric Decker Day. Decker was a 2005 graduate of the school.

Decker is in his fourth NFL season as a wide receiver with the Broncos. He and his team will take on the Seattle Seahawks in Sunday's Super Bowl.
