The newest quarterback of the Denver Broncos kept it in the family when asked about his favorite NFL player of all-time. Over the weekend, Russell Wilson fielded questions from fans on Instagram.

And when the topic of who his favorite player ever is, Russ revealed its none other that the sheriff himself: Peyton Manning.

Adding, "Peyton coached me in his camp in 10th grade!"

Football fans reacted to Wilson's admission on social media. "Gang elite," one user replied.

"I can’t believe both of these guys will [be] Denver Broncos for life," a Mile High fan commented.

"I just love them so much," another Broncos fan said.

"Omaha & Let Russ Cook!" another commented.

"Wait till Peyton buys the Broncos," laughed another user.

From attending Peyton Manning's camp to handing him one of the worst losses of his career in the Super Bowl.

It's quite the story arch.

You can see a bit of Peyton in Russell Wilson's approach to the game. But just imagine if Peyton Manning had Russ' running ability...
