Two-time Super Bowl-winning Quarterback and Five-time NFL MVP
Legendary quarterback Peyton Manning, the NFL’s only 5-time Most Valuable Player and a 14-time Pro Bowl selection, earned his place among the greatest quarterbacks in league history as a leader in nearly every statistical passing category. During the 2015–16 season, Manning led the Denver Broncos to a win in Super Bowl 50, making him the first quarterback in NFL history to win a Super Bowl with two different teams. The first overall pick in the 1998 draft, Manning amassed the most career touchdown passes in league history in addition to ranking first all-time in completions and passing yards. Named a first-team All-Pro selection by the Associated Press on seven occasions, Manning owns more postseason berths and 300-yard passing games than any quarterback in NFL history. For his actions off the field, Manning was honored as the recipient of the Byron “Whizzer” White Humanitarian Award and the NFL’s Walter Payton Man of the Year in 2005 as well as the Bart Starr Award in 2015. He and his wife, Ashley, established the PeyBack Foundation in 1999 to promote the future success of disadvantaged youth by assisting programs that provide leadership and growth opportunities for children at risk.
