Some things never get old. Seeing the legend that is Peyton Manning walking around the campus of The University of Tennessee is one of those things. ‘The Sheriff’ was back in town on Tuesday afternoon, checking in with the new staff and taking a look at the updated weight room before his presentation of the Peyton Manning Scholarship.
Todd Helton — another former Tennessee quarterback — joined Manning during his visit with Coach Pruitt.

The two-time Super Bowl champion continues to be an asset for the university. He’s yet to make his next move since retiring from the NFL, but Manning has options the broadcast booth or perhaps an NFL front office, according to reports.
No matter what he does, you can bet he will be giving his all to make The University of Tennessee a better place.
