Ava Frances Manning: Background, Parents, Education, and Career

Born in New Orleans, Eli is the youngest son of Archie Manning, the NFL quarterback himself. Football became almost ingrained in his soul. Eli’s older brother Peyton was already a rising star and the pressure to follow suit could have been great. But Eli developed his own style – calm under pressure and strategic minded.

Eli studied at Isidore Newman School and then the University of Mississippi (Ole Miss). There he matured under coach David Cutcliffe and won the Maxwell Award and Johnny Unitas Golden Arm Award in his senior year. His college career showed he can lead clutch drives and make pinpoint throws.

Eli had an emotional 2004 NFL Draft. A twist came when he was drafted first overall by the San Diego Chargers. Eli, unhappy with the Chargers’ offensive scheme, arranged a transfer to the New York Giants. And this move – partly arranged by his father Archie – proved crucial for Eli and the Giants.

Eli had some rough early years in New York but he was resilient. The turning point for him came in the 2007 season. The underdog Giants lost to the undefeated New England Patriots in Super Bowl XLII. Eli was a different beast with his poise and clutch throws. He helped the Giants pull out an upset to win Super Bowl MVP. This win established Eli in Giants history and began a quarterback rivalry with Tom Brady.

The magic returned four years later. Again underdogs, the 2011 Giants faced heavily favored Patriots in Super Bowl XLVI. Eli made another unlikely comeback victory. His second Super Bowl MVP trophy made him only the fourth quarterback to win multiple Super Bowls with different teams.

Eli played 16 seasons for the Giants. The quarterback has many franchise records – passing yards and touchdowns. He retired in 2019 with a legacy of leadership and clutch performances that earned him fans and fellow players respect.

After retirement, Eli has invested in a few companies. Also, he supports charities that help children in health and education.

Eli’s a family man. He is married to Abby McGrew since 2008 and have four daughters. Eli keeps his family life relatively private but posts glimpses on social media.

Eli Manning is estimated to worth around USD 200 million. It all came from his NFL career, endorsement deals and business acumen. But Eli is more than a money man. He inspires young athletes that hard work, perseverance and a cool head can get you greatness. To his fans and the New York Giants faithful, Eli Manning was a champion, a leader and a Giant.
