I remember like yesterday coming up to Nolan Rollins who was a minister on the staff at the First Baptist Church of Little Rock and saying to him, “I got to see your Tennessee Vols play in person the other day.” He turned around and looks happy and then I told it was in Memphis and his expression changed. That night Tennesse lost 21-17 for the first time ever to the Tigers.

It is really sad that Peyton Manning and his wife Ashley have to leave Indy. They have lots of friends at their local church that they have grown close to and they really wanted to stay.

Ashley Manning

Here is an article I found on his wife Ashley from Sept 2010:

Ashley Manning is a wife for 9 years of famous Indiana Colts quarterback Peyton Manning. One of most popular and successful quarterbacks in the NFL history. He holds the record for most NFL MVP awards and he’s known to many as one of the best quarterbacks of all time.

Ashley Manning had completed a degree from the University of Virginia in 1997 in finance and marketing. Peyton Manning met Ashley Manning by Ashley’s neighbor in their freshman year of college. They got married St. Patrick’s Day 2001. She is now a real state developer and recently built homes in Tennessee.

She’s stunningly beautiful but she prefers to stay out of the spotlight. She told the media in the past that she’d “like to stay out of the spotlight” and has held true to her word.

Behind every successful man there is a woman.

Ashely Manning was the rock that Peyton Manning can lean on when he’s had a worst moments on or off the field.
