Borghi — who spent four years at Washington State after graduating from Pomona in 2017 — went undrafted earlier this year and had previously attended a minicamp tryout with the Broncos in June and another tryout on Aug. 3. Borghi was signed by the Indianapolis Colts earlier this summer but was released five days after signing.
An instrumental piece of Pomona’s 2017 5A State Championship team, Borghi ran for over 3,500 yards and 50 touchdowns during his career as a Panther.
The Broncos found themselves down a running back after Damarea Crockett suffered a season-ending ACL injury on Aug. 2. Nevertheless, Borghi likely has an uphill climb to make the 53-man roster, as five other running backs are currently on the Broncos offseason roster.
The Broncos have found success with locally-raised running backs before, as South High School graduate Phillip Lindsay — now with the Colts — made the Pro Bowl in 2018.
