Texas quarterback Arch Manning is going viral for the way he spent his recent vacation. The talented passer used the time to get in some work, spurning the typical group trips that are synonymous with spring break.

Manning was seen sharpening his on-field skills during the week, which has college football fans talking about his decision and outlook online.

The rookie signal caller didn’t spend his vacation like most other college students. Rather than hitting the coast for some time at the beach, Manning took to the training facility.

The motivation to get better could stem from his position on the Texas depth chart. While head coach Steve Sarkisian has said the youngster’s been solid in spring practice, he currently sits behind incumbent starter Quinn Ewers and second-string gunslinger Maalik Murphy in the QB room.

Videos of the freshman are now floating around social media showing Manning training with QB Country, a quarterback development camp that’s hosted some of the top passers in the NFL and NCAA.

Online followers were quick to react, posting their responses to the training session in the comments section.

One person wrote, “Man those mechanics are picture perfect! It’s a thing of beauty,” while another posted, “That release is ridiculous.”

Someone else said, “Dude looks smooth. Can’t wait to see if he beats out Quinn.”

This fan saw shades of his uncle while viewing the clip, saying, “No lazy feet there! Reminds me a little of Peyton…” If the Longhorns get anywhere near the production of Peyton Manning, they’ll be in good hands over the next few years.

It hasn’t been all work for Arch Manning over the last couple of weeks, though. This past Sunday, he was spotted spending some time at a PGA tournament event.

Manning, along with future NFL draft pick Bijan Robinson, was seen taking in the final round of the WGC-Dell Technologies Match Play in Austin.

The two were there to support another Texas Longhorn in Scottie Scheffler, who was playing in the field.

Not a bad couple of weeks for the budding star.

Arch Manning and the Longhorns will be back on the field this week as they gear up for the annual Orange-White Game on April 15th.
