Peyton Manning :: John Biever/SI
Peyton Manning turns 38 today. I searched the SI Vault for our first profile of him and came across this piece from Aug. 1996, just before Manning's sophomore season at Tennessee.
"Eleven months have passed and another college football season beckons. Peyton Manning is the player of the year before the first ball is snapped. He holds in his 20-year-old hands the dreams of Tennessee football fans, who desperately want an SEC title and the Volunteers' first national championship since 1951, and who want to see Manning become the school's first Heisman Trophy winner. He is also some NFL team's living fantasy, a 6'5½", 223-pound once-in-a-decade catch who might enter the draft alter this, his junior season. "He's the first pick," says the New York Giants' director of college scouting, Tom Boisture. "Last year, this year, next year, whenever he wants." Manning is in a magical place, soon to be a wealthy professional, but for one more year he is a throwback, living an ideal. Now there is a story."
