Peyton Manning

 

 

Peyton Manning was born on Marsh 24th, 1976 in New Orleans, Louisiana. He has two brothers, Cooper and Eli Manning. Cooper plays golf and Eli is the quarterback for the New York Giants. His dad, Archie Manning, used to play for the New Orleans Saints. Peyton plays for the Indianapolis Colts. He also started the “Peyback Charity.” His wife, Ashley Manning, is from Memphis, Tennessee and attended the University of Virginia.

The six feet, five inch, 230 pound quarterback passed for more than 7,000 yards and only four out of 380 passes got intercepted in college. He also led his college team to the Gator Bowl. During the 2,000th season, Manning set a new record with 33 touchdown passes in one season. Peyton led the Colts to the playoffs in 1999, 2000, and 2002. Manning also became the only player in NFL history with 4,000 or more passing yards in four straight years.

Peyton impacted my life by starting the “Peyback Charity” because he donates money to people that don’t have any shelter and also, I liked the fact the he was chosen number one in the NFL draft.

I find that Manning is remarkable because Peyton was the only NFL quarterback to have taken every snap for his team in 1998.

The lesson that I have learned from Peyton Manning is that being a quarterback is a very important job because you’re the leader of the offense and if you mess up, the whole team messes up.
