“The scholarship has always brought me back to the University of Tennessee every year,” Manning said. “It makes me feel old now that we’re up in the teens as how many we’ve given. This year, we’re giving two, and we’ve always just given one. The scholarship that I won as a student-athlete was put in an endowment and was matched and added to by the university, and this year, Ashley and I added one donation back to the university. We wanted to give two because it’s such a great program for these scholars to get into, because they automatically get into the Haslam Scholars Program, which is just outstanding. It’s been a special connection for me to not just the football program but the entire university.”

In related news, Archie and Olivia Manning recently celebrated their 41st wedding anniversary, not that Mike Klis felt it was worth mentioning.
