Archie Manning is widely known for his time playing quarterback at Ole Miss in college and for the New Orleans Saints in the NFL. Archie and his wife Olivia have three sons, Cooper, Peyton, and Eli. All three boys did follow their dad’s footsteps by playing football. Peyton and Eli are quarterbacks in the NFL who both have Super Bowl rings. Since we already know about Archie and his time in the NFL I wanted to talk with him about fatherhood.
Ken Griffey is a former major-league outfielder who played for nearly 20 years, winning two World Series and appearing in three All-Star games. He is the manager of the Bakersfield Blaze, the Cincinnati Reds’ Single-A minor-league affiliate. In 1990 Ken Griffey, Sr. and Ken Griffey, Jr. got to play together for the Seattle Mariners. They made history by becoming the first father and son combination to hit back to back home runs. You get to hear the two time World Series champion’s take on fatherhood.
