Peyton Manning        

Super Bowl-Winning Quarterback & Four-Time NFL MVP

Peyton Manning is an American former professional football quarterback who played in the National Football League (NFL) for 18 seasons. Considered to be one of the greatest quarterbacks of all time, he spent 14 seasons with the Indianapolis Colts and was a member of the Denver Broncos in his last four seasons. Manning played college football for the University of Tennessee, leading the Tennessee Volunteers to the 1997 SEC Championship Game in his senior season. He is the second son of former NFL quarterback Archie Manning and older brother of former NFL quarterback Eli Manning.

Manning was selected by the Colts as the first overall pick in the 1998 NFL Draft. From 1998 to 2010, he improved the fortunes of the struggling Colts franchise and helped transform them into consistent playoff contenders. During his tenure as starting quarterback, Manning led the team to eight division championships, two AFC championships, and one Super Bowl title in Super Bowl XLI, the franchise's first in over three decades, as well as their first since relocating to Indianapolis.

After undergoing neck surgery that forced him to miss the entire 2011 season, Manning was signed with the Broncos. Serving as the team's starting quarterback from 2012 to 2015, he contributed to the Broncos clinching their division each year and his playing career concluded with a victory in Super Bowl 50.

Manning holds many NFL records, including five AP MVP awards, 14 Pro Bowl appearances, 14 4,000-yard passing seasons, single-season passing yards, single-season passing touchdowns. He is also tied with Otto Graham for the most First-Team All Pros for a quarterback, and is second in career passing yards and passing touchdowns. A two-time Super Bowl winner and the most valuable player of Super Bowl XLI, Manning is the only starting quarterback to have multiple appearances and win the Super Bowl with more than one franchise.

Shortly after beginning his NFL career, Manning started his own charity called "the Peyback Foundation". The Peyback Foundation's mission is to help disadvantaged kids, and focuses its efforts in Louisiana, Tennessee, and Indiana. For his work with this foundation, Manning received the Samuel S. Beard Award for Greatest Public Service by an Individual 35 Years or Under, an award given out annually by Jefferson Awards.
