Peyton Manning        

Super Bowl-Winning Quarterback & Four-Time NFL MVP

Peyton Manning entered the NFL in 1998 as the first overall draft pick and has since earned his place among the NFLs greatest quarterbacks. He is the only player in NFL history to be named MVP four times and has made eleven Pro Bowl appearances while being named to the Associated Press NFL All-Pro First Team five times.

Manning considers his most important accomplishments to be those he has achieved off the field. In 1999, he established The PeyBack Foundation to promote the future success of disadvantaged youth by assisting established programs that provide leadership and growth opportunities for children at risk. The PeyBack Foundation has since established the PeyBack Award which is presented to a current or former athlete involved in professional football who exhibits character, integrity, honor and who has given back to the game and society.

Manning has a longstanding relationship with St. Vincents Hospital in Indianapolis who renamed its children's hospital to "Peyton Manning Children's Hospital at St. Vincent". He has demonstrated his commitment to children by establishing the True Heroes program, which provides monthly events and parties for pediatric patients and has also served as a spokesperson for various child health and safety initiatives.

In recognition of his outstanding charitable contributions, Manning has received numerous awards including the Henry P. Iba Citizen Athlete Award, USA Weekends Most Caring Athlete Award, the Bryon Whizzer White Humanitarian Award and was named the 2005 Walter Payton Man of the Year by the NFL. During his tenure at the University of Tennessee, Manning was a three-time Academic All-America honoree.
