Archie Manning Is A Top Motivational Speaker

Are you looking for a speaker who will keep your audience’s attention with entertaining stories, humor and insightful thoughts? If so, you should consider Archie Manning. Archie Manning is a popular motivational speaker at Playing Field Promotions.

Manning is the patriarch of the first family of football – he’s the father of Indianapolis Colts quarterback Peyton and New York Giants quarterback Eli. And while younger people may only know him as the father of his famous sons, Manning enjoyed a stellar football career himself long before his sons could throw a football.

Manning was an All-American quarterback at Ole Miss and still holds the school record for total career touchdowns at 56. He also ran for 823 yards and threw for 4,753 and scored 14 touchdowns.

In 1971, Manning was selected by the New Orleans Saints with the second pick overall of the NFL draft. With the Saints, Manning picked up where he left off in college. He was a two-time All-Pro, set many Saints passing records and was named the 1978 NFL Offensive Player of the Year. He played 10 of his 13 seasons with the Saints and is still a revered figure in New Orleans, a distinction he now shares with current Saints quarterback Drew Brees.

Among his honors…

  • College Football Hall of Fame – 1989
  • Third in Heisman Trophy Voting – 1970
  • Fourth in Heisman Trophy Voting – 1969
  • #18 Ole Miss Jersey Retired
  • Ole Miss All-Century Team
  • All-SEC – 1969, 1970
  • Walter Camp Award – 1969
  • NFL Offensive Player of the Year- 1979

Manning remains active in the New Orleans community and was selected as one of 10 outstanding New Orleanians by Family Service of Greater New Orleans. He hosts several Archie Manning Cystic Fibrosis benefit golf tournaments in Louisiana and Mississippi and is active in a wide variety of charitable and civic causes, including the Louisiana Special Olympics, the New Orleans Area Boy Scout Council, the Salvation Army, NOKIA Sugar Bowl Committee, New Orleans Sports Foundation, National Football Foundation and College Hall of Fame Board of Directors.
