Eli Manning inducted into Louisiana High School Sports Hall of Fame
While he will have to wait a few more years before he's eligible for Canton, Eli Manning can now add another Hall of Fame induction to his already impressive resume.
On Tuesday night, the legendary Giants quarterback was inducted into the Louisiana High School Sports Hall of Fame.
Manning attended Isidore Newman High School in New Orleans, Louisiana. During his high school career, the future two-time Super Bowl MVP amassed 7,389 passing yards and 89 touchdowns.
Manning was part of the Louisiana High School Sports Hall of Fame's 10-person Class of 2021, which also included Peyton Manning, Ed Reed, Jake Delhomme, Willis Reed, Marcus Spears, Daniel Cormier, Elvin Hayes, Ashley Tappin and Bert Jones.
The 40-year-old former Giants QB has certainly had an eventful first 15 months in retirement.
Immediately following his retirement announcement last January, Giants President and CEO John Mara announced that Manning would be inducted into the franchise's Ring of Honor and his No. 10 jersey would be retired. Soon after, over the weekend of Super Bowl LIV, Manning received the 2020 Bart Starr Award for character and leadership. Just a few months later, Manning was inducted into the New Jersey Hall of Fame.
Manning also announced earlier this year that he will be going back to college next season to tell some of college football's greatest stories in a new show on ESPN+ called "Eli's Places", a college football version of older brother Peyton's show on ESPN+ which revisits important moments in NFL history through discussions with former players, coaches and other key figures.
