Knoxville, Tenn. (WHNT) – Peyton Manning stayed busy during his recent trip to Knoxville.  He held his annual charity golf tournament, handed out scholarships to students at the University of Tennessee and went to his alma mater’s football practice to teach what he knows to next season’s team.

It’s become a tradition for Manning to visit his former team.

“If I can be there to help, tell them about a certain throw, maybe how to work out, I like to share how I throw to my receivers and what you can work on to improve if they have that question, but I let them start the conversation,” said Peyton Manning, former Tennessee quarterback.  “I enjoy getting to know these kids and I do enjoy being a part of the program.”
