Bio

Elisha Nelson Manning, usually known by the shortened name Eli Manning, was born in New Orleans, Louisiana on January 3, 1981. A quarterback for the New York Giants, he is a two-time Super Bowl champion and two-time Super Bowl MVP. Eli's father is former NFL player Archie Manning, while his older brother is current NFL star Peyton Manning.

Manning attended Isidore Newman School in New Orleans before committing to the University of Mississippi. During his college football career, he led the Ole Miss Rebels to victory at the 2004 Cotton Bowl Classic, where they defeated the Oklahoma State Cowboys. Manning, for his role in the win, was named as the game's MVP. He finished his senior year by winning various awards, including the Maxwell Award and the Johnny Unitas Golden Arm Award and was voted as the Southeastern Conference's Offensive Player of the Year by coaches and the Associated Press.

In the 2004 NFL Draft, Manning was selected by the San Diego Chargers as the first overall pick. However, he had previously stated that he would refuse to play for the team. As a result, the Chargers made a deal whereby he would be traded to the New York Giants, in exchange for a package which included Philip Rivers.

Over the course of his career with the Giants, Manning has led the team to victories at Super Bowl XLII and Super Bowl XLVI and was the MVP both times. In the process, he became only the fifth player in history to be named Super Bowl MVP twice. On both occasions, the Giants defeated the New England Patriots, despite being perceived as the underdogs. Manning has been named to the Pro Bowl three times and was honored as the Sporting News Sportsman of the Year in 2008. In 2011, Manning set a new NFL record for the most touchdown passes in the fourth quarter in a single season, with 15.

Eli Manning holds various Giants franchise records, including the records for most career completed passes, most career touchdown passes and most career passing yards. In 2005, he was included in the New York Giants 80th Anniversary Team.
