NEW ORLEANS (WVUE) -

In the 90's Cooper, Peyton, and Eli Manning put Newman on the football map nationally. Over 20 years later, another Manning is generating the same kind of buzz Uptown. Arch, Cooper's eldest son, plays quarterback for the Greenies. Now he's only in middle school, but the talent and potential is clearly apparent. 

"Nowadays with social media, and what's out there, obviously the interest has started. As we say, he's still an eighth-grader. Obviously we're excited to have him. I think as hard as he's working, and the the things I've seen, he'll be here in a hurry, we're a year away," said Newman Head Coach Nelson Stewart.

Coach Stewart and the Newman varsity squad will be getting a QB with pinpoint accuracy, great pocket awareness, and a strong football bloodline starting with his father.

"He's got a high football IQ. I think one of the things about Cooper, he grew up around it. Watching Cooper through the years, he's a guy who understands the game. He worked at Manning Passing Academy. Two-time all-state wide receiver, and he's got two good uncles that have worked on some footwork, and throwing with him a little bit," said a smiling Stewart. "He does look sound. If you look at his mechanics and his release, he's further ahead then most we've had. I think he looks the part right now."

Manning already owns one championship trophy at Newman. Arch threw three touchdown passes to capture a middle school title over Christian Brothers.
