For the last two weeks on the Bronco Nation Podcast, Tyler and I have been asking, who is Don Hutt? Well, a listener of the show has done some research. Austin Pettis broke Don’s all time receptions record versus the University of Hawai’i. Don also holds the record for the most career receiving touchdowns mark at 30. Currently Austin has 29 career receiving touchdowns. Another record could fall this season as the Broncos have 4 remaining games counting the bowl game.
