Peyton Manning is known for being a star quarterback and an endorsement king but behind all that he’s genuinely a nice guy.

The Boston Herald via the Associated Press is reporting that Manning is calling the hospital victims of the Aurora, Colorado movie theater shooting one by one to lift their spirits.

A spokeswoman for the Medical Center of Aurora says that Manning spoke one-on-one by phone on Saturday afternoon with several patients brought there after the shooting.

Fifty-eight people were wounded after a gunman clad in riot gear opened fire in a crowded theater early Friday where “The Dark Knight Rises” was being shown. Twelve people have died in the massacre.

Manning is doing a great job of becoming a fixture in the Denver community and this act kindness will only help continue to make him the new king of the Mile High.
