Although not everyone agrees that he is the best player in the country, Arch Manning is the biggest name in high school football. Widely considered the No. 1 overall rookie domestically – some place him number two – Manning is about to start his senior season.
Before he started, Manning’s school—Isidore Newman (La.)—hosted 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, totaling 81 yards and one interception, according to 247Sports. While those numbers aren’t anything out of the ordinary, Manning showed his ability to make plays with his legs by scoring a 34-yard rushing touchdown.

Newman officially begins his 2022 season on the road Friday against Hahnville, La. at 7:00 p.m.
Looking ahead, Manning has pledged to play his college prom in Texas under Steve Sarkisian. With his commitment (and a few others), the Longhorns sit in second place in the 2023 recruiting rankings.
