Archie Manning played quarterback at Ole Miss before being drafted into the NFL in 1971. Manning played in the National Football League for the New Orleans Saints, the Houston Oilers and the Minnesota Vikings. With such a strong background in football, it was no surprise when his sons (Cooper, Peyton and Eli) continued in their father’s footsteps.

In his three years on the Rebels football roster, Manning had the opportunity to play in the first national prime time broadcast of a college football game in 1969 where his natural talent shined through. Archie Manning was a two-time All-SEC team selection, Mississippi Sportsman of the Year and recipient of the Nashville Banner Trophy as the Southeastern Conference MVP, among many other achievements. In 1989, Manning was inducted into the College Football Hall of Fame.
Archie Manning went on to play in the NFL in 1971 with the New Orleans Saints. Over the next 12 years, Manning had a solid football career until his retirement in 1984. Manning now resides in New Orleans and, with a house in Oxford, Mississippi, tries to attend as many Ole Miss Rebels games as he can.
