Senior QB Eli Manning (New Orleans, La.) was named
to the 2003 SEC Good Works Team and was a halftime
feature in Jefferson Pilot’s telecast of the August 30

ty service by any student-athlete in school history.
Among his many community service projects, Manning
serves as a mentor to kids at the Oxford Learning Center
as well as with the Lafayette County Juvenile Justice
Program. He also participated at the “Christians With
Cancer Camp” at Camp Hopewell and is the “Honorary

Manning was named to the 2002 American Football
Coaches Association (AFCA) Good Works Team.

tle extra air time this season. Manning will be one of the
featured athletes in the NCAA’s “Stay in School” com-
mercials this season. The spots are shown during tele-
vised NCAA events.
