Arch Manning scores 3 touchdowns, leads his team to victory in his national television debut
The recruitment of Arch Manning has already been called the most anticipated recruiting battle in the history of the Southeastern Conference despite the fact Cooper Manning’s son has only played three games of his sophomore season at Isidore Newman.
The next Manning poised to terrorize college defenses may be young but he certainly looks to be worth the hype based on his most recent performance on the field.
Arch lived up to the hype during his national television debut on Thursday night, leading his team to a 55-22 win over Booker T. Washington High School on ESPN.
Manning completed 21 of 26 pass attempts and had 241 yards with a touchdown and two interceptions. The sophomore also had two rushing touchdowns in the game and it should be noted that both of his interceptions hit Isidore Newman receivers in the hands before the ball was intercepted by Booker T. Washington defenders.
Incredibly, despite all the hype surrounding his pedigree and recruiting ranking, Manning still has two more years of high school football before he even gets to college. But based on his performance on Thursday night, it’s easy to see why nearly every college football program in the nation is eager to land the touted quarterback.
