NFL Legend Archie Manning spoke at the 34th Annual Dinner and Induction ceremony at the Knoxville Convention Center on August 4th. There was a dinner beforehand that began at 6:30 p.m. before the actual ceremony began an hour later. Tickets to get in costed $150 per person or $1,400 for the entire table, and a good part of either purchase is good for a tax deductible write off. This year’s group of inductees included 10 of Tennessee’s most distinguished athletes and personnel in sports media, so it was a big honor for those selections.
The Mississippi native played football in college for the University of Mississippi in Oxford where he was the starting quarterback for three years straight. In 1971 Manning entered the NFL Draft and was the 2nd overall pick by the New Orleans Saints with whom he played with for 11 years. The 1969 SEC Player of the Year also played with the Houston Oilers and Minnesota Vikings for two years apiece afterwards. He is also the father of the Broncos’ and Giants’ quarterbacks, Peyton and Eli.
The retired NFL player spoke at this year’s Annual Dinner and Hall of Fame Induction ceremony in Knoxville, Tennessee on August 4th. Even though tickets were $150 per person, it as a full house as many came to see the football star give his keynote speech.
