HUDDLE UP WITH THE MOST FAMOUS FAMILY IN FOOTBALL - THE MANNINGS!!!
Pile into the car with Eli, Peyton and their older brother, Cooper in Family Huddle for a trip to visit their grandparents. Their dad, former NFL star Archie Manning, is at the wheel with Olivia at his side. Eli, Peyton and Cooper joke around and play football at every opportunity. The boys run fun plays like the buttonhook, quarterback sneak, and hook and ladder. Family and football will always be a big deal in the Manning family. Family Huddle is based on some of the Mannings’ memories from their days in Louisiana and Mississippi.
Archie Manning is currently a spokesman and consultant for a number of major companies. He lives with his wife, Olivia, in New Orleans, Louisiana.
As quarterbacks, three Mannings — Peyton, Eli and their father, Archie — have achieved fame in the NFL. But in their new children's book, the three tell stories about playing football in the backyard. More at NPR.org
