INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. (Mar. 8, 2016)-- Former Colts defensive back Marlin Jackson talks Peyton Manning retiring, their 2007 Super Bowl team and what he thinks Peyton will do next.

Jackson is forever linked to the legacy of Peyton Manning.  It was Jackson who intercepted Tom Brady's pass during the AFC Championship Game, putting the Colts in the 2007 Super Bowl.

His catch is now famously known as "The Catch."  Jackson tells FOX59's Fanchon Stinger what makes Peyton special as a teammate and friend and how Peyton makes the players around him better.

He also shares some of the fun moments with Peyton Manning.

Jackson said he was surprised by how emotional Peyton was when he announced his retirement but understands the emotion of stepping away from the game and into the next phase of your life as a husband and father.

Jackson spends time now running his foundation and providing curriculum to local schools that teach character development, morals, values,  emotional health and skills students can use to make right choices in life and in career development.

He is in the process of expanding his curriculum nationwide. Watch the video above for more.
