Here comes another QB named Manning

No pressure here…his last name is Manning; he’s 13-years old; his grandfather is Archie; and his uncles are Peyton and Eli. Now, can he live up to his surname?

On Friday, Arch Manning, the son of Cooper Manning, participated in the varsity football spring game at the Isadore Newman School (New Orleans, Louisiana) as an 8th grader. It’s the same school where his uncles played scholastically.

Arch currently stands 6-1 and on Friday against Archbishop Shaw, he threw three touchdowns. He doesn’t have any collegiate offers yet, but that will probably change pretty soon.

Check-out Manning’s highlights from Friday night below.
