Eli continues to give

July, 25, 2010
Quarterback Eli Manning is one of the more charitable players in football. The Giants' franchise QB and his wife, Abby, announced that they are donating a $1 million gift to the Ole Miss Opportunity, a need-based scholarship program.

Manning and his wife met while they were both students at the University of Mississippi.

"Abby and I were drawn to this program of helping people who might not be able to attend college otherwise," Manning said in a statement to the university. "To us, it was a way of truly helping a lot of people."
