Plus: SFA head football coach tests positive for COVID-19
The next chapter in the Manning dynasty has arrived.
2023 quarterback Arch Manning made his national TV debut on ESPN last night, leading New Orleans’ Isidore Newman School to a 55-22 win over KIPP Booker T. Washington.
From SBNation: “Manning passed for 463 yards and six touchdowns in the first two games to start his sophomore season. He still had to prove himself against KIPP Booker T. Washington after throwing four interceptions against the school as a freshman. Manning didn’t play a perfect game against Washington as a sophomore on Thursday, but he had several flashes of brilliance that will only get more people excited about the type of quarterback he could one day become.” Here’s at least one sample below:
