             === Peyton Manning named SI Sportsman of the Year ===
 
 New  York, NY  (SportsNetwork.com) - Denver Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning
 has been named Sports Illustrated's 2013 Sportsman of the Year.
 
 The award is presented annually to the person or team who transcended the year
 in both athletic performance and character.
 
 Manning  is  the only four-time  NFL MVP and is  among the candidates for this
 year's  honor. He  has 47 touchdown passes  this season and needs four more to
 break  the single-season record  of 50 set by Tom Brady, the 2005 SI Sportsman
 winner.
 
 The  35-year-old veteran is the eighth SI Sportsman from pro football, joining
 Pete  Rozelle  (1963), Terry  Bradshaw  (1979),  Reggie Williams  (1987),  Joe
 Montana (1990), Tom Brady (2005), Brett Favre (2007), and Drew Brees (2010).
 
 Last year's winner was Miami Heat star LeBron James.
