Peyton Manning to headline Colorado Sports Hall of Fame's Class of 2018

Posted Oct 10, 2017

Manning will be honored April 18 when the Colorado Sports Hall of Fame inducts its Class of 2018.

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. — The Colorado Sports Hall of Fame will gain another Broncos player in April when former quarterback Peyton Manning is inducted.

Rashaan Salaam, Joe Glenn, Sam Pagano, Tracy Hill and Alex Burl join Manning in the Class of 2018, which the Colorado Sports Hall of Fame announced Tuesday.

Manning compiled a 45-12 regular season record during his four years with the Broncos and threw for 17,112 yards and 140 touchdowns. He also earned a quarterback rating of at least 100 during three of his four seasons in Denver.

In 2013, Manning set the all-time single-season passing touchdown record after throwing for 55 scores. He earned First-Team All-Pro and MVP honors that year and led the Broncos to Super Bowl XLVIII.

Manning, who picked up another First-Team All-Pro honor and three Pro Bowl appearances during his Broncos career, also helped lead the Broncos to a Super Bowl 50 win.

He was named the Colorado Sports Hall of Fame Athlete of the Year in both 2012 and 2013.

Manning retired from his 18-year NFL career in March 2016.

The Broncos have a long, intertwined history with the Colorado Sports Hall of Fame. President of Football Operations/GM John Elway was inducted in 1999, former tight end Shannon Sharpe earned the honor in 2005 and Owner Pat Bowlen was added in 2007. In all, Manning will be the 33rd Bronco inducted, according to the Colorado Sports Hall of Fame.

Former cornerback Champ Bailey was the latest Broncos player inducted into the Colorado Sports Hall of Fame. He was enshrined April 27, which coincided with the first round of the 2017 NFL Draft.

Tickets for the Colorado Sports Hall of Fame Banquet are $200 each and Sponsor tables start at $2,500. For additional ticket and table information, please phone the Colorado Sports Hall of Fame (www.coloradosports.org, 720-258-3535). The Colorado Sports Hall of Fame & Museum is located at Gate 1 on the west side of Sports Authority Field at Mile High at 1701 Bryant Street in Denver.
