It looks like there is another addition to the long lineage of Manning family quarterbacks. Arch Manning seems set to take over for his famous uncles and bring the Manning name into the next generation of signal callers.

Footage of Arch Manning (what an awesome QB name by the way), who is in eighth grade at Isidore Newman Middle School in Louisiana, is going viral this week. He is the son of Cooper Manning, the eldest of Archie Manning's three boys.

Cooper was a star wide receiver before spinal stenosis ended his playing career when he got to college, but Arch is following in the footsteps of Peyton, Eli and Archie and playing QB.

Footage of him working out has been making the rounds the last few days.

As impressive as that clip is, consider the fact it is actually almost a year old. The Twitter account QB Country originally posted the video back in May 2018. So, that's actually Arch as a seventh-grader displaying those talents.

It is pretty clear by this kid's footwork and ball placement that he's got a ton of ability. It will be fun to see his career develop over the next few years as he starts to make his own name for himself.
