DENVER, Co. -- The recognition just keeps coming for Peyton Manning.

The former Indianapolis Colts quarterback will be inducted into the Colorado Sports Hall for his time as the Broncos quarterback during the team's run to Super Bowl 50. 

Manning will be one of six new members inducted into the class of 2018. He'll be joined by Rashaan Salaam, Sam Pagano (father of Indianapolis Colts Head Coach Chuck Pagano), Alex Burl and Tracy Hill.

In his four seasons with Denver, Manning helped the Broncos to the most wins and highest winning percentage of any team in the league. He earned three of his career Pro Bowl selections, one of his MVP awards, two of his career first-team all-pro honors and the 2012 Comeback Player of the Year award while on the team.
