14-year-old Arch Manning, Peyton and Eli's nephew, impresses in first high school football game
You might remember Arch Manning from earlier this year. In May, still an eighth-grader, he dazzled in a high-school spring game.
It’s a new school year and the nephew of Peyton and Eli Manning is now a high school freshman at Isidore Newman School. On Friday, he quarterbacked his first regular-season high school game, going 22-of-34 passing for 224 yards and three touchdowns. Newman coach Nelson Stewart said the grandson of Archie Manning didn’t look like a freshman.
“We wanted to see maturity and pocket presence, and he did everything we asked him to do as far as executing our offense and his ability to stay mature and balanced leading our wide receivers,” Stewart told NOLA.com. “That’s why he’s in this position.
“He doesn’t look like a freshman. That maturity and how you handle those tight moments are where the greatness can come.”
Being 14, Arch is growing. Back in May, he was listed at 5-11, 155 pounds. He’s reportedly up to 6-1, 166 pounds.

Arch is a class of 2023 recruit. On Arch’s 247Sports profile, there are no listed interests or scholarship offers. Obviously, Tennessee, Ole Miss and others have plenty of time to recruit Cooper Manning’s son.
