Could Archie Manning’s Grandson Be Better Than Peyton or Eli?
When you think of the Manning family, one word comes to everyone's mind...quarterback.
So far the family has produced three Hall Of Fame caliber quarterbacks and word has it a new Manning may be better than all 3 of them.
Archie was the second overall pick for the Saints in the 1971 NFL Draft while Peyton and Eli were number one overall picks in their receptive drafts.
Arch is the son of Cooper Manning. According to his grandpa, he may be the best Manning quarterback yet. Arch, obviously named after Archie, is a freshman at Newman High School in New Orleans and he's already starting varsity. To put that in perspective, both Peyton and Eli didn't start on the varsity squad their freshman year.
This is interesting to note, Arch is way smaller than his uncles. His height measures in at only 6' even while Peyton and Eli are both 6'5".
Archie has said in interviews that Arch is will ahead of the his two sons at this same point in their high school career. He's not only turning heads on a national level because of his last name, but his performances as well.
In his debut game this season as the starter, Arch was 24 for 34 with 234 passing yards and three touchdowns.
He's already receiving interest from LSU, Duke, and Tennessee. And if that's not impressive, Arch already has an offer on the table from Ole Miss as a high school freshman. He'll graduate in 2023.
