Summary
"From New York Times bestselling author Lars Anderson comes a revealing portrait of the first family of American sports. What the Kennedys are to politics, the Mannings are to football. Two generations have produced three NFL superstars: Archie Manning, the Ole Miss hero-turned-New Orleans Saint; his son Peyton, widely considered one of the greatest quarterbacks ever to play the game; and Peyton's younger brother, Eli, who won two Super Bowl rings of his own. And the oldest Manning child, Cooper--who was forced to quit playing sports after he was diagnosed at age eighteen with a rare spinal condition--might have been the most talented of them all."--Amazon.com
Summary
A biography of the first family of sports in the United States describes how an early tragedy that tested their faith ultimately led the Mannings to athletic greatness, producing three football stars over two generations
