OXFORD, MS (WMC) - The National Football Foundation and Hall of Fame saluted its Chairman Archie Manning as the recipient of the Walter Camp Distinguished American Award.

It’s for his success both on and off the Field.

Manning was an All-American Quarterback at Ole Miss, an NFL Pro Bowler with the New Orleans Saints, and a College Football Hall of Famer.

He’s since succeeded in Business and Broadcasting. As NFF Chairman, Manning oversaw Fund Raising for the College Football Hall of Fame in Atlanta.

The organization raises more than $1.3 Million each year to benefit student athletes.
