Eli Manning    

Super Bowl Champion Quarterback for the New York Giants

Eli Manning is an American football quarterback for the New York Giants of the National Football League (NFL). He was drafted as the first overall pick in the 2004 NFL Draft by the San Diego Chargers and was immediately traded to the Giants who in return gave up a package, highlighted by fourth overall selection Philip Rivers. Manning is the son of former NFL quarterback Archie Manning and the younger brother of former NFL quarterback Peyton Manning.

Manning holds Giants franchise records for most passing yards, touchdown passes, and completed passes in a career. In 2012, in a 41–34 win over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, he threw for 510 yards, 3 yards short of Phil Simms' record of 513. He led the Giants to victory in Super Bowls XLII (2008) and XLVI (2012), defeating the New England Patriots in both games. Manning was named Most Valuable Player in both Super Bowls, becoming one of five players to have multiple Super Bowl MVP awards.

Manning started 210 straight games from 2004 to 2017, the second-longest consecutive starts streak by a quarterback in NFL history. He is the seventh all-time leader in passing yards and eighth in touchdowns. Though lacking his brother's regular-season consistency and high-caliber performances, Manning is known for his two improbable Super Bowl-winning postseason runs in 2007 and 2011, in which he led an underdog Giants squad to Super Bowl victories twice against the Patriots.

Eli is a graduate of the University of Mississippi, where he played from 2000 to 2003 and received numerous academic and athletic honors. He set or tied 47 single-game, season and career records as quarterback of the Ole Miss Football team. Eli won many awards including the Maxwell Award as the nation's best all-around player, the Johnny Unitas Golden Arm Award, the National Football Foundation and College Hall of Fame Scholar-Athlete Award, the Sporting News Radio Socrates Award and the SEC Player of the Year, to name just a few. He graduated with a degree in Marketing. Eli was the number one selection in the 2004 NFL Draft.

Off the field, Eli is involved in numerous charitable organizations. He and his family assisted in the relief efforts after Hurricane Katrina by organizing airlifts of emergency supplies to areas affected by the hurricane in his hometown of New Orleans and surrounding areas. He has been honored by the Police Athletic League of New York City. Eli has become the Giants' leader in supporting the National Football League and American Heart Associations campaign, What Moves U, a national youth movement and awareness initiative designed to promote physical fitness and healthy living to an increasingly inactive generation of children. He is also a member of the American Red Cross National Celebrity Cabinet and a member of the President's Council on Physical Fitness and Sports.
