HENDERSON, Tenn. (AP) — The NFL's recently retired Peyton Manning is speaking this fall at the Freed-Hardeman University Benefit Dinner to raise money for student scholarships.

Freed-Hardeman President Joe Wiley said in a news release that the former Tennessee quarterback is speaking at the event on Dec. 2 in Henderson. Sponsorships for the event start at $600, and general admission tickets, if available, will go on sale Oct. 1.

Manning is a 14-time Pro Bowl selection and the NFL's only five-time Most Valuable Player. He has two Super Bowl victories in four appearances, with the Indianapolis Colts in 2007 and the Denver Broncos this year.

At Tennessee, he led the Vols to an SEC championship as a senior in 1997 and earned consensus All-America Honors.
