Peyton Manning Named Sportsman Of The Year [Photo]


Four neck surgeries later, Payton Manning has been named the Sports Illustrated Sportsman of the Year award.

What does it mean? He’s been amazing in his comeback two years after leaving the Indianapolis Colts to sign with the Denver Broncos and now lead them to a chance to head the Super Bowl.

According to Peter King, recently retired Yankees closer Mariano Rivera and Boston Red Sox David Ortiz were runner ups for the “award.”

So far this year Manning has 47 touchdowns and 10 interceptions, while throwing over 4,800 yards in 15 weeks.
