The Mannings: Models of Sportsmen

Posted on Minggu, 06 Maret 2011 |
Peyton and Eli Manning are brothers and NFL players. Peyton is a quarterback for the Indianapolis Colts and embraces numerous NFL passing records, including the record for touchdown passes in a single season: 49 in 2004; and consecutive seasons with over 4,000 yards passing: 6 from 1999 through 2004. He also holds most school passing records at the University of Tennessee.

Eli is the starting quarterback for the New York Giants. Eli helped his team to secure the NFC Eastern Division Title. In the regular season finale, he threw a 78 yard laser to Burress helping his team to a big lead. While the Giants were quickly eliminated in a brutal performance against the Carolina Panthers the following week 23-0, Eli's first full season was seen as a success. He threw for nearly 3,800 yards, tossed 24 touchdowns to only 17 interceptions, and rallied his team to several exciting fourth quarter comebacks.

But this weekend Peyton and Eli are working together in South Louisiana. They're helping many young players get their minds off their homes that were damaged by Hurricane Katrina in New Orleans.

Peyton and Eli Manning are conducting sessions at the Manning Passing Academy at Nicholls State University.

This academy was founded by former Saints quarterback Archie Manning, who is also Peyton and Eli’s father and has been helping high school-age players from all around the country work on passing, running and receiving skills for around 11 years. A crowd that included coaches and college players assisted to help out.

Shortly after Katrina, during the 2005 football season the two star quarterback brothers were between the first celebrities to be seen on the ground in Louisiana, unloading relief supplies for the victims of the disaster.
