Peyton Manning is a two-time Super Bowl champion, holds some of the most prestigious records in NFL history including most touchdown throws, and soon enough "The Sheriff" can add a statue to his résumé.
The Indianapolis Colts announced that local sculptor and fireman, Ryan Feeney, will be in charge of building the statue of Peyton Manning,which will surface in 2017. The plan to build the statue was announced by Colts owner Jim Irsay in March.
Feeney has already created several sculptures around the Indianapolis area including the Fallen Deputy Memorial in front of the Marion County Jail, the Peace Dove sculpture made out of custom firearm parts, and the bronze eagle at the Indianapolis 9-11 Memorial.
Manning was the starting quarterback of the Colts for 14 seasons, leading the team to a Super Bowl XLI victory over the Chicago Bears. As a Colt, "The Sheriff" threw for 54,828 yards and 399 touchdowns.
