Peyton Manning will add another accolade to his lengthy resume.

In April, the two-time Super Bowl champion will be inducted as the 33rd Bronco in Colorado Sports Hall of Fame. Joining Manning in the Class of 2018 is late Colorado running back Rashaan Salaam, former Northern Colorado football coach Joe Glenn, former Fairview High football coach Sam Pagano, former basketball player Tracy Hill and late Colorado State football and track star Alex Burl.

Manning signed with the Broncos in free agency of 2012 after playing his first 14 NFL seasons with the Indianapolis Colts. In 2013, he starred in one of the most prolific offenses in NFL history (606 points, 55 passing touchdowns, 5,444 passing yards), while guiding the Broncos to a berth in Super Bowl XLVIII. Two years later, he helped the Broncos back to the Super Bowl, where he earned his second ring before retiring in March 2016.

Manning is the NFL’s only five-time MVP, and his 14 Pro Bowl selections are tied for most in the league.
