Cleveland State Community College will begin selling tickets Monday to hear the father of football’s first family, Archie Manning. One of the biggest names in sports around the globe, Mr. Manning will be speaking at the L. Quentin Lane Center in August 2020 as the headliner of CSCC’s Homecoming Weekend.
Mr. Manning will speak on Saturday, Aug. 15, 2020 at 7 p.m. Floor seats and bleachers seats will be available for purchase beginning Monday at mycs.cc/archiemanning. Details and ticket purchasing is also available by calling the Cleveland State Foundation Office at 423-614-8700 or e-mailing to firstname.lastname@example.org. Information will also be available leading up to the event at the college’s website at ClevelandStateCC.edu.
CSCC’s special guest speaker is known most recently for being the father of two future National Football League Hall Of Famers. Sons Eli and Peyton Manning, both former NFL Super Bowl MVP’s, along with their brother, Cooper, are the three children of Manning and his wife, Olivia. A native of Drew, Ms., Manning is a member of the College Football Hall Of Fame.
Beyond being a former collegiate and professional football player himself, Mr. Manning has served on numerous charitable organizations throughout the United States. The former Ole Miss quarterback, as well as his son, Peyton, were selected as two of college football’s greatest players of all time.
“We are so excited to bring someone as accomplished as Archie Manning to Cleveland State,” said Dr. Bill Seymour, CSCC president. “This will be a special time for our region. We wanted the speaker we chose to be just as special. Someone who could really inspire those who take part.”
Floor seating will be available for $75/ea. and bleacher seating will be available for $50/ea. while seats remain for the exclusive event. Among the other events taking place during CSCC’s 2020 Homecoming Weekend will be a CSCC Alumni and Friend Celebration, a CSCC Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony and a CSCC Golf Tournament.
