Former Denver Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning, the NFL’s only five-time MVP and a 14-time Pro Bowl selection, has earned his place among the greatest quarterbacks in league history. Since entering the NFL in 1998 with the Indianapolis Colts as the first overall draft pick, Peyton has thrown the most touchdown passes in league history in addition to ranking second all-time in wins by a quarterback, completions and passing yards.
Named a first-team All-Pro selection by the Associated Press several times, Peyton owns more postseason berths and 300-yard passing games than any quarterback in NFL history.
The recipient of the Byron “Whizzer” White Humanitarian Award as well as the NFL’s Walter Payton Man of the Year Award in 2005, Peyton serves as a member of as a member of the American Red Cross National Celebrity Cabinet and The Pat Summit Foundation Advisory Board. He and his wife, Ashley, formed the PeyBack Foundation in 1999 to promote future success of disadvantaged youth through various youth programs.
A living legend, and one of the most respected leaders in the NFL, Peyton has a remarkable story of what it means to be bold in the midst of uncertainty. Following the 2010 season, Peyton endured what seemed to be a career ending neck surgery. After missing the 2011 season, Manning bravely returned to the field and led his team to the playoffs in 2012, and the Super Bowl in 2013.
