While not everyone agrees he’s the best player in the country, Arch Manning is the biggest name in high school football. Broadly considered No. 1 as a rookie in the country — some rank him second — Manning is about to enter his senior season.
Before it started, Manning’s school — Isidore Newman (LA) — held a preseason game Friday night, playing one half of football against New Orleans De La Salle (LA).
During Manning’s time on the field, he completed six of 12 pass attempts for 81 total yards and one interception, according to 247Sports. While those numbers aren’t anything to write home about, Manning showed his ability to make plays with his feet by scoring a 34-yard touchdown.
Newman officially begins its 2022 season on the road Friday against Hahnville (LA) at 7 p.m.
Looking ahead, Manning has committed to play his college ball at Texas under Steve Sarkisian. By virtue of his commitment (and several others) The Longhorns are second in the 2023 Recruiting Rankings.
