Eli Manning has humorous reaction after Arch Manning breaks his high school passing yards record
Eli Manning saw his Isidore Newman passing yardage record, a mark that had stood for nearly a quarter-century, broken by his nephew, Arch, on Friday.
The Ole Miss and New York Giants great threw for 7,389 yards during a decorated career with the Greenies. The younger Manning entered Friday night’s game needing 110 yards and picked up 356 to become the program’s new leader in that category. On top of that, he broke Peyton Manning’s school record for passing touchdowns in a career.
Eli Manning was no doubt a proud uncle on Friday night, but that didn’t stop him from giving his nephew a good-natured ribbing over social media.
“But how many of those passing yards did he throw from under center? I had 7,000!” he joked.
Arch Manning still has several more games to go before his high school football career is up, giving him more time to create distance between himself and his famous uncles in the record books before eventually heading to Texas. And if he’s half as good as the 2 of them—and his grandfather and namesake, Archie—he’ll likely be playing on Sunday afternoons before the decade is up.
