Peyton Manning and Tom Brady were high schoolers when they appeared together on the same football field for the first time.

At a quarterback camp run by none other than Bill Walsh.

So said Thomas Brady Sr. -- Tom’s dad -- in a phone interview from San Mateo, Calif.

It happened in summer 1993 at Stanford University’s quarterback camp. Before Manning became a University of Tennessee Volunteer, Indianapolis Colt or Denver Bronco. And before Brady became a University of Michigan Wolverine or New England Patriot.

Both were budding star high school quarterbacks at the time. Even then, as today, each sought every edge he could get.

Manning was 17, about to enter his senior year at Isidore Newman School in New Orleans.

Brady was 16, heading into his junior year at Junipero Serra High School in San Mateo.
