Peyton and Eli’s nephew Arch Manning looked dominant again this past weekend, accounting for three more touchdowns and winning the second game of his sophomore season.
In the victory, Manning ran for two touchdowns and passed for another as Isidore Newman School defeated Metairie Park Country Day 27-7 on Saturday.
Arch Manning also showed some serious toughness, lowering his shoulder and trucking a defender on a run during the second quarter of the game.

I wonder if Eli or Peyton ever lowered the boom like that on a defender.
Since his excellent freshman season, Arch grew from being 6-foot-1 and 165 pounds to 6-foot-3, 190 and as that video shows, he isn’t afraid to use his newfound size.
Manning, the number five ranked high school quarterback in the nation, and first in his 2023 class, scored six touchdowns in just three quarters in Newman’s season opening 41-0 win.
As a 14-year-old freshman, Arch led Newman to a 9-2 record, making it to the quarterfinals of the state playoffs while passing for 2,407 yards, 34 touchdowns, and running for 6 more TDs during the season.
According to his dad Cooper, Arch isn’t currently accepting any scholarship offers or doing any interviews.
However, 247Sports’ recruiting profile for Manning has 10 schools at the top of his list: Alabama, Boston College, Duke, Georgia, LSU, North Carolina, Ole Miss, Tennessee, Texas and Oklahoma.
