Legendary NFL QB Archie Manning has been announced as the featured speaker for this year’s Augusta University’s Alumni Weekend Signature Event that’s happening at 5 p.m. on April 30th in the Maxwell Theatre of the university’s Summerville Campus. Tickets to the event will cost $15 for the general public or $10 for alumni of August University, and they are able to be bought in advance from the university’s website or by calling their Office of Alumni Affairs. At the event there will also be some recognition made for the university’s presidential alumni award winners.
The Drew, Mississippi native and two-time Pro Bowl football player is also the father of current NFL quarterback for the Denver Broncos, Peyton Manning, and current NFL quarterback for the New York Giants, Eli Manning. The Mississippi native played for the New Orleans Saints, Houston Oilers, and the Minnesota Vikings over the course of his 16 season career in the NFL, and was also named the Whizzer White NFL Man of the Year in 1977. Even though the New Orleans Saints never officially retired Manning’s #8 jersey, but it is understood that the number will never be reissued again.
Manning will be headed out to Augusta University during the later part of April to speak at their Alumni Weekend Signature Event, and for just a few dollars fans and residents can see one of the most historic NFL figures live in person.
