Denver Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning isn't done with Omaha.

During a sports banquet in the Nebraska town Thursdsy night, the Most Valuable Player quarterback and Super Bowl winner promised to keep shouting "Omaha!" at the line of scrimmage before plays.

Manning got a lot of attention as well as the city during the playoffs when he used Omaha call before snaps.

"I can't tell you how many suggestions I get on what word I should use next year -- cities, states, businesses, a lot of websites," Manning said. "I am here to tell you I am sticking with 'Omaha!'"

Manning got a check for nearly $70,000 for his foundation that benefits at-risk children with businesses donating money for every "Omaha."

"I'm very pleased to be here in the real city of Omaha," he said. "People of this city have been very gracious to me during my visit here. This will go a long way to help the children at risk."
