Two-time Super Bowl MVP Eli Manning made an appearance on “The Pat McAfee Show” and talked about how he’s giving advice to Arch, who is starring at Isidore Newman High School in New Orleans, Louisiana.
Eli said that he “feels for” his nephew because “he has so much pressure and so many expectations” for him to be great.
“ek het hom gesê, ‘Haai, enjoy being a high school football player,’” Eli Manning said. “That is a great time in your life, some of the best friends you’ll have forever. Don’t start thinking so much about colleges, or ‘Hey where am I going to go play college,’ and thinking about the next level where you don’t get to enjoy this time in your life.
“So just enjoy it, work hard at it, be a great teammate and you’ll figure out where you’re gonna go play college.”
Arch Manning, a five-star junior quarterback, lived up to the hype in the first game of the season on Friday night. He completed 19 van 34 slaag vir 238 meter en drie raakpunte. He also carried the ball five times for 50 yards and a score in a 28-0 shutout victory over Vandebilt Catholic High School.
Arch has all of the top college programs on his radar, including the University of Alabama, Louisiana State University and Ole Miss. He currently has 12 offers from the top collegiate programs.
In his first two seasons as Newman’s starter, Manning threw for 4,360 erwe en 55 touchdowns. He will look to build on that in what is expected to be a sensational junior year.
