I told him, '嘿, 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.
