Arch Manning has become one of the most discussed high school football fans in the country, even though he's just finished his freshman season. It is not difficult to understand why.
The 15-year-old quarterback is the son of Cooper Manning, who is Peyton and Eli's brother and Archie's oldest son. He plays at the Isidore Newman School in New Orleans, where Cooper, Peyton and Eli played. His 34 touchdowns in 2019 were most in the New Orleans area.
We have heard a lot about Arch Manning. We haven't heard from Arch Manning yet. The child prodigy appears to be protected because, according to Sports Illustrated, unlike most children his age, he is not on social media and has never been interviewed. The Manning family would not comment on Arch to SI.
"They are very private and protect Arch," John Georges, who owns The Advocate and The Times-Picayune, told SI. "As much as they try to keep a lid on it, there is a buzz. Certain people know how to raise thoroughbreds. The Mannings know how to raise athletes."
Arch currently has no scholarship offers as his family has rejected everyone, according to the report. He met with LSU head coach Ed Orgeron last month after the Tigers won the national championship. Cooper, like Eli and Peyton, was a top high school prospect and committed to Ole Miss before spinal stenosis ended his career.
The Mannings' biggest echo of the blossoming prospect of the third generation was when Grandfather Archie told Indianapolis Star last fall, "He's probably a little bit ahead." [Peyton and Eli] as a newbie. "
But the family tries to keep the media away from the future star.
"You turned everything off," Ken Trahan, a member of the New Orleans broadcast media, told SI, "but attention will come."
