A large crowd packed the civic center on Tuesday night for the banquet, and Manning's speech. After a speech by the head of the day nursery, and a video, Manning was introduced by former Cooper Cougar Justin Snow.
Snow was also a teammate of Manning's during his time with the Indianapolis Colts.
Besides highlighting Manning's career accomplishments as a player, Snow also recounted a story from his rookie year in the NFL that involved Manning.
Following Manning's speech, there was a question and answers segment. The questions were taken in advance and were read in part by BCH Sports Director David Robinett.
