About Archie Manning
A Legend in Life

Archie ManningWhen you think of Archie Manning, football immediately comes to mind. But Manning’s appeal transcends his athletic achievements. People worldwide have been inspired by his warm personality, humor, drive, and commitment to family and community.

Growing up, Manning wanted a close relationship with his father who tragically took his own life when Archie was in college. Archie married Olivia, his college sweetheart and Ole Miss homecoming queen. They have three boys, Cooper, Peyton, and Eli. Archie and Olivia raised their sons with the philosophy that, "It's the right thing to do, so do the right thing." The result, which Archie and Peyton capture so clearly, is a tribute to the values that Americans hold in high regard: work hard, stand up for what you believe in, treat each person with respect, and be grateful for what you have and for what you have achieved.

The former NFL Pro Bowl quarterback and League MVP, Manning enjoyed a fabled football career, beginning at the University of Mississippi where he was named an All-American Quarterback and is the only Ole Miss player to have his number retired. He was elected to the 50-Year All-South Team (1940–1990), named one of the Top 25 Athletes of the Century in Louisiana, and he and his son Peyton were named among the 100 All-Time Greatest College Football Players.

In 1971, Manning was the second player chosen in the NFL draft, and the number one draft choice of the New Orleans Saints. (He was also drafted four times by major league baseball!) He set Saints’ passing records, played in two Pro Bowls, and was named the NFL Most Valuable Player in 1978. He was the first player in the Saints’ history to be inducted into the Louisiana Superdome Wall of Fame. His prowess on the field and his sterling character earned him as many awards as he scored touchdowns. Archie Manning concluded his 15-year NFL career in 1985.

Manning has since devoted his life to his family and to causes that he believes in, supporting the Special Olympics, Boy Scouts of America, The Salvation Army, and the United Way, among others. Join Jewish Family Service for an afternoon of inspiration from a true legend in football...and life.
