Decision Point


A young, 7-year-old Rikki Perea was facing that moment when all true decisions are made, that moment when he answered the door to his family’s home and, there staring back at him from a height of two feet taller than he, was a uniformed police officer, locking eyes and asking, “Are your parents home?” Rikki’s world and the sweet innocence of his childhood were about to change forever as his parents would soon hear those nonretractable words regarding the life of Rikki’s older brother, Danny. In that moment, Rikki made a choice — a life-changing decision — that would forever impact his life, his achievements, and his purpose, and would launch him into becoming a world class champion who would play a key role in serving world class athletes and help win the 2016 Super Bowl world championship for the Denver Broncos.
