Ryan MichaelSenior Writer IIIFebruary 18, 2009

The milestones for Peyton Manning seem to be endless. It has been announced that Peyton Manning is set to be awarded as the AFC Offensive Player of the Year at the annual NFL 101 Awards, one of the most prestigious offseason banquets.

This marks the fifth time in his career in which he has earned that distinction.

He also won the award in 1999, 2003, 2004, and 2005.

He has now become a five-time award winner which makes him the most decorated athlete in the history of the 39-year history of the 101 awards.

The awards are determined by a panel of comprised of 101 sportswriters and broadcasters who cover the National Football League.

Former Indianapolis Colts head coach Tony Dungy is also being honored. He is set to receive the Lamar Hunt Award which is given to honor outstanding accomplishment.

Both Indianapolis legends will be honored at the NFL 101 Awards Banquet and personally, they couldn't have chosen two more deserving candidates.
