Some kids find having a famous parent overwhelming. Others struggle to shine in the shadow of an older sibling. Eli Manning, son of legendary Ole Miss quarterback Archie Manning and younger brother of NFL star quarterback Peyton Manning, faced a double challenge. This profile offers insight into the life and career of Eli, the youngest Manning, who followed in his father's footsteps to Ole Miss and went on to lead the New York Giants to a stunning victory in Super Bowl XLII, winning the MVP award just one year after his older brother.

"Junior high librarians will find this series to be a solid addition to their biography section. The tales about each person gleaned from a broad variety of sources show students the value of balanced reporting.
