INDIANAPOLIS -- A new Gatorade commercial celebrates the career and legacy of Peyton Manning through his outreach via handwritten letters he wrote to teammates, coaches, media and fans over his 18-year career.

Manning has reached out to hundreds with these sincere letters, and Gatorade paid tribute to the Sheriff using his own words.

The commercial features Manning's former teammates Jeff Saturday, his center for the majority of his career in Indianapolis, and Demaryius Thomas, one of his main wide receivers while in Denver. His brother Eli, former coach at Tennessee and former coach in Indianapolis, Tony Dungy, are shown reading a letter from Peyton as well.

It also features a fan who received a letter from Peyton after her son died. 

All of those in the commercial read aloud what Manning wrote, showcasing his care for those around him. 

Watch the commercial below.
