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."
