Q:

What is Cooper Manning's biography?

A:

Cooper Manning, the eldest brother of football stars Eli and Payton Manning, was an all-state wide receiver in high school; he intended to play football at the collegiate level and eventually in the National Football League, but he was forced to end his football career prematurely, due to a medical condition known as spinal stenosis.He is now part-owner of an energy investment firm called Howard Well and is a millionaire.

Spinal stenosis causes the spinal column to narrow. This narrowing places pressure on the nerves in the spinal column. It was too dangerous for Cooper Manning to continue playing football with this illness, as getting tackled on the football field could have resulted in paralysis or death.
