Manning family

The Mannings are an American family who have gained fame via numerous family members playing American football (specifically the position of quarterback) and are considered to be a dynasty within the sport. Archie Manning from Mississippi, was the first Manning to play in the National Football League (NFL), spending the majority of his career playing for the New Orleans Saints based in New Orleans, Louisiana. The Manning family has since resided in Louisiana.[1][2]

Three members of the Manning Family–Archie, Peyton, and Eli–have had successful collegiate and professional football careers playing collegiately in the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA), specifically in the Southeastern Conference (SEC), and professionally in the National Football League (NFL). The Manning's football awards include two College Football Hall of Fame inductions, 20 cumulative Pro Bowl selections, seven first-team All-Pro selections, five NFL MVP awards, six Super Bowl appearances, four Super Bowl victories, three Super Bowl MVP awards, five ESPY Awards, and one Pro Football Hall of Fame induction. Two members went on into the field of sports broadcasting after their retirement from football and collaborated to win a Sports Emmy Award.[3]
