The Next Manning

Nice article on The Athletic about the next Manning who is in high school

Arch Manning is not most high school quarterbacks. He is the progeny of football royalty, the latest descendant of New Orleans’ first family of football. He’s the next Manning: the son of Cooper, grandson of Archie and nephew of Peyton and Eli.

And in his first year of varsity competition, Newman’s precocious 15-year-old freshman isn’t just fulfilling the considerable expectations of his family’s football legacy. He’s exceeding them. - ( New Window )

Can you imagine...

the immense pressure that kid is going to be under? For as long as he plays, he'll have to be compared to his grandfather and uncles... I hope (and assume) part of his training includes dealing with all of that pressure.
Who cares?

There is nothing like it in sports anywhere.

It would be like if Ken Griffey Jr had a younger brother who also happened to have a HOF career.
