On Sunday, Peyton Manning will forever leave his mark in the history books as The Sherriff heads to Canton. The two-time Super Bowl-winning quarterback will receive his induction into the Pro Football Hall of Fame with the class of 2021. And to celebrate, the Indianapolis Colts took a trip down memory lane and unveiled a touching, tear-jerking tribute video in his honor.
“You moved on, we moved on, but the impact still remains,” said Manning’s former head coach Tony Dungy in the video.
You gave this city something to believe in.
Thank you, Peyton. pic.twitter.com/Vrwkkga60v

Manning’s career in Indianapolis was nothing short of greatness. After he played his first season in 1998, Peyton Manning led Indianapolis to two Super Bowl appearances during his career. However, his first elusive Super Bowl win came in the 2006 season on a rainy night in Miami.
Aside from his Hall of Fame induction, Manning has had quite another big story swirling around the Manning family. Peyton Manning’s nephew and Godson, Arch Manning, is the top-ranked quarterback in the 2023 class. With the fame already surrounding Arch, and his last name of Manning, Peyton will likely have to deflect more questions about his nephew until he does commit.
On the weekend of Aug. 7-8, the Pro Football Hall of Fame will induct both the classes of 2020 and 2021 into the coveted hall. The NFL Network will broadcast the coverage.
