Denver Broncos legendary quarterback Peyton Manning spoke in Henderson, Tennessee on Friday December 2nd to take part at the 52nd Annual Benefit Dinner as they keynote speaker on Freed-Hardeman University’s campus. He spoke for quite a long time about how important it is to have respect from your colleagues, and people need to earn it instead of demand it. He also emphasized how key it is to have a lot of ambition and passion for everything that you set your mind to so that you can have the most success possible. In addition to that, the star quarterback made sure to keep the air in the room light by telling some entertaining stories and jokes from his world famous career in the NFL. The audience just loved having him up on stage, and it was a profitable night for the fundraiser.
The 14-time Pro Bowl champion was born in New Orleans and is the son of former professional NFL player, Archie Manning. His brother Eli is also a professional football player for the New York Giants, so it is needless to say that the talent runs in their family. Manning was first recognized for his abilities when he played the sport for the University of Tennessee, and he was the number one overall pick in the 1998 NFL draft where he was selected by the Indianapolis Colts. After 13 years with the team he was traded to the Denver Broncos where he still continues to excel.
Manning spoke at FHU earlier this month to be a part of this year’s Annual Benefit Dinner and raise money for student scholarships. He kept everyone on the edge of their seats with stories, motivational words, and encouragement for everyone to shoot for the stars in their own way.
