            Denver Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning, the league’s only five-time MVP and a 13-time Pro Bowl selection, has earned his place among the NFL’s greatest quarterbacks. Since entering the NFL in 1998, joining the Indianapolis Colts as the first overall draft pick, Manning has been named to the Associated Press NFL All-Pro First Team numerous times. 
            Manning owns the second-most wins, passing yards, touchdown passes, completions, and attempts by a quarterback in NFL history. His 13 postseason appearances rank first by a quarterback in league annals along with his 84 career 300-yard passing games. 
            In two seasons with Denver, Manning has led the Broncos to consecutive 13-win seasons and No. 1 conference seeds while throwing for an NFL-best 100 touchdowns in the regular season and playoffs. 

                Previous speakers for the event include: Steve Spurrier, Bruce Pearl, Pete Rose, Kirk Cameron, Lou Ferrigno, Coach Fulmer/Peerless Price/Al Wilson, Nick Saban and Herschel Walker.  Proceeds from the dinner are used to benefit the community of Athens.
