Peyton Manning has played with the Indianapolis Colts since they selected him in the 1998 NFL Draft as their first pick in the first round. Since then he has made many records and won several awards.
Born on March 24, 1976 in New Orleans, Louisiana Peyton Manning comes from a footballing family. His father played professionally in the NFL for 13 seasons and his younger brother also plays professionally.
Peyton Manning had a successful high school career where he was the teams main starter for three seasons and was named the Gatorade State of Louisiana Player of the Year in 1993-4.
Despite his fathers legacy with the University of Mississippi Peyton stunned many when he chose to attend the University of Tennessee where he became Tennessee's all time leading passer and made an NNCAA record for the best all time interception percentage.
In 1996 whilst attending university Manning dropped his pants while being treated by assistant athlete trainer Ann Naughright but an investigation later concluded that rather than being of a sexual natural it was intended as a mooning, which had gone wrong.
Manning was disciplined as a result and made to apologize in writing and the university settled her harassment claims for $300,000.
Manning has become one of the NFL's most marketable players over the years appearing in several TV and printed ads for some of the NFL's biggest sponsors.
