Imagine the smarts of Eli Manning, the arm of Peyton Manning and the generational knowledge of Archie Manning all rolled up into one. That’s exactly what Isidore Newman School has in the next generation of Manning.
Arch Manning, son of Cooper Manning and nephew to Eli and Peyton, made his High School debut on Friday night, throwing for three touchdowns and make it all look too easy.
Check out some highlights:
“He’s got a high football IQ. I think one of the things about Cooper, he grew up around it. Watching Cooper through the years, he’s a guy who understands the game,” Arch’s coach, Nelson Stewart, told the Indy Star in January. “And he’s got two good uncles that have worked on some footwork, and throwing with him a little bit. He does look sound. If you look at his mechanics and his release, he’s further ahead than most we’ve had. I think he looks the part right now.”
The 6-foot-1, 13-year-old Arch Manning already has the attention of several college programs, including Eli’s alma mater, Ole Miss, and Peyton’s alma mater, Tennessee.
