Sports Illustrated has named their 2013 Sportsman of the Year--and their selection is sure to make Broncos fans happy.
Quarterback Peyton Manning received the honor this year, making him only the eighth NFL player to earn the distinction.
Manning has led the Broncos to an 11-3 record this season, but many say he's had even more achievements off the field.
"The imprint he's left not only on the team but the community is undeniable," SI managing editor Chris Stone told DenverBroncos.com, as reported by CBS Sports. "To some degree, we're taking a measure of Peyton's entire career, dating back all the way to college."
The official Sports Illustrated issue will be released Wednesday.
