Two-Time Super Bowl-Winning Quarterback & Five-Time NFL MVP
Legendary quarterback Peyton Manning, the NFL’s only five-time Most Valuable Player and a 14-time Pro Bowl selection, has earned his place among the greatest quarterbacks in league history as a leader in nearly every statistical passing category and the first starting quarterback in NFL history to win a Super Bowl with two different teams. Honored as the recipient of the Byron “Whizzer” White Humanitarian Award and the NFL’s Walter Payton Man of the Year in 2005, Peyton was named Sportsman of the Year by Sports Illustrated in 2013. Off the field, he serves as a member of the American Red Cross National Celebrity Cabinet and The Pat Summit Foundation Advisory Board, and continues to maintain a strong relationship with St. Vincent’s Children’s Hospital (Indianapolis), which in 2007 was renamed the “Peyton Manning Children’s Hospital at St. Vincent.” 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.
