Eli Manning to be inducted into Mississippi Sports HOF class of 2024
Legendary Giants quarterback Eli Manning has achieved a long list of accolades over the past two decades.
Two-time Super Bowl MVP, Walter Payton NFL Man of the Year, the Bart Starr Award, New York Giants Ring of Honor, not to mention his No. 10 jersey being retired by both the Giants and his alma mater Ole Miss.
Manning was inducted into the Louisiana High School Sports Hall of Fame back in 2021. Two years later, the former quarterback was inducted into the Cotton Bowl Hall of Fame. Now, Manning is being honored yet again, this time by the state where he enjoyed his successful collegiate career.
Manning is headlining the Mississippi Sports Hall of Fame Class of 2024, the MSHOF announced this week.
Manning's final season at Ole Miss led to him being selected with the No. 1 pick in the 2004 NFL Draft. He threw for 3,600 yards, 29 touchdowns and 10 interceptions across 13 games in 2003, finishing with a passer rating of 148.1. He earned numerous honors that season, including the Johnny United Golden Arm Award, Maxwell Award, SEC Offensive Player of the Year, First-Team All-SEC, Second-Team All-American.
His 10,119 passing yards and 81 passing touchdowns both still rank as the most in Ole Miss history.
The other seven members of the Mississippi Sports Hall of Fame Class of 2024 include Walter "Red" Barber, Richard Duease, Paul Elias, Jimmy Smith, Savanté Stringfellow, Becky Vest and Jimmy Webb.
The class of 2024 will be inducted next August.
