Arch Manning, the nephew of star NFL quarterbacks Peyton and Eli Manning, made his debut for his high school varsity football team on Friday night. Of course, highlights of his debut have gone viral on social media.
The class of 2023 quarterback recruit looked good in his debut – duh – throwing three touchdown passes for Isidore Newman High School in New Orleans.
Arch Manning, the son of Cooper Manning, certainly looked like his uncles behind center.
Arch Manning made his debut for the Newman varsity last night against Shaw. Manning threw 3 TD's in the contest, two caught by @Jmsj_1. The 6'1" QB will be a freshman this fall for the Greenies. @FOX8NOLA pic.twitter.com/wdieQLZZ9p

Arch Manning still has four years of high school football to play, but unsurprisingly, we’re already talking about his college recruitment.
Rivals.com has named three favorites for the 6-foot-1 quarterback:
- LSU (hometown program)
- Tennessee (where Peyton played)
- Ole Miss (where Archie and Eli played)
Just created a new profile for 2023 Newman (La.) QB Arch Manning. Sound familiar?
The 6-foot, 160-pound freshman QB just played his first spring game + threw 3 TD. Must be in the DNA? His grandfather, Archie + father, Cooper, were in the stands

The expectations for Arch Manning are almost surely going to be unfair, but that kind of comes with the territory of being a quarterback with that last name.
The recruitment will be fun to watch, for sure.
