LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WHAS11) -- A big name in football got things started for the Kentucky Derby Festival on Friday, April 19, with the They're Off Luncheon.
He was a quarterback and two of his famous sons followed suit, do the names Peyton and Eli ring any bells?
Archie Manning absolutely crushed the speech on Friday and all he did was tell stories about his family and his NFL career.
Manning also had a lot of great things to say about the Louisville football program.
There were some great moments at Friday's luncheon between Archie, Governor Beshear and Mayor Fischer as he was presented with a Louisville Slugger baseball bat.
