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 one of the leaders in nearly every statistical passing category and the first starting quarterback in NFL history to win a Super Bowl with two different teams.
Manning was selected for induction into the Pro Football Hall of Fame’s Class of 2021. A first-ballot Hall of Fame selection, Manning is set to be enshrined in Canton, OH later this year.
Manning entered the NFL in 1998 with the Indianapolis Colts as the first overall draft pick. When he retired, Manning held records for 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, no quarterback in NFL history had more playoff appearances or 300-yard passing games than Manning when he retired.
Manning 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. The PeyBack Foundation has provided millions of dollars in grants and programs since its inception.
Manning currently hosts two shows on ESPN+; Peyton’s Places and the NFL version of Detail. At the end of 2020, Manning founded Omaha Productions, a production company that will produce unscripted and scripted programming as well as documentaries and digital programming. Omaha Productions first project is the expansion of the Places franchise; serving as executive producer of the series as it expands into other verticals including college football, fight sports, baseball and soccer. In pre-production on NBC, is the revival of the classic television quiz show, College Bowl, where Manning will serve as host and executive producer. He balances these projects while continuing his iconic commercials and various business partnerships.
Manning and his family reside in Colorado.
