Cooper Manning is Peyton’s oldest sibling, who was born in 1974 and is currently 48 years old. He is the first child of Archie and Olivia Manning and played football as a wide receiver in a private institution known as Isidore Newman School.

Cooper soon distinguished himself in high school and decided to attend the University of Mississippi, but things were about to change quickly. A few months before the beginning of the academic year, Cooper started to feel numbness in his toes and fingers.

He, therefore, went to the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota, where he was diagnosed with spinal stenosis. This disease consists of a narrowing of the spinal canal resulting in pressure on the spinal cord or nerve roots. Unfortunately, as a consequence, Cooper was forced to abandon his football career.

Cooper soon had to reinvent himself. He first worked as a partner of an energy investment boutique known as Scotia Howard Weil. But Cooper missed sports, and that’s why, later in life, he also started to work in the media, hosting his segment on The Dan Patrick Show, a radio and television sports talk show.

His segment was called ‘Manning on the Street.’ In 2015, he also joined the broadcast team of Fox NFL Kickoff, which serves as the secondary pregame show for the NFL under the NFL on Fox brand. Since 2016, Cooper has been working with AJ Capital Partners as senior managing director of investor relations.

Peyton Manning was born in 1976 and is currently 46 years old. He is a former football quarterback who played in the NFL for a total of 18 seasons.

Peyton went to Isidore Newman School, where he was named Gatorade Circle of Champions National Player of the Year.

In high school, he wore the #18 jersey in honor of his older brother, Cooper, who had to retire from football due to a spinal injury. He then chose the University of Tennessee Volunteers, where he trained under coach Phillip Fulmer.

During the 1998 NFL Draft, he was chosen by the Indianapolis Colts for which he played as a quarterback from 1998 to 2010. During these years, he greatly helped the team leading them to 11 playoff runs, three AFC Championship Games, two Super Bowl appearances, and one championship title in Super Bowl XLI.

Unfortunately, in 2011 Peyton had an operation on his neck and was released by the team. He soon signed with the Denver Broncos, for which he played for three years, from 2012 to 2015. Despite his operation, Peyton remained an amazing player and helped the team reach two Super Bowls.

Peyton married his wife, Ashley, in 2001 on St Patrick’s day. The two had twins, a daughter called Mosley and a son named Marshall. The family lives in Denver, Colorado.

Peyton is also a philanthropist. Soon after starting his professional career, he launched his charity organization called Peyback Foundation. This nonprofit operates in Louisiana, Colorado, Indiana, and Tennessee and helps disadvantaged kids.

Peyton also served as a volunteer in the wake of Hurricane Katrina, assisting in delivering 30,000 pounds of water, pillows, diapers, baby formula, and Gatorade to the people of New Orleans.
