Manning led his school to the state semi-finals last season, completing 72 percent of his passes for 1,643 yards and 19 touchdowns.

Coach Nelson Stewart has known the Manning family for years and started coaching Arch in the sixth grade, when he started playing football. There are many positives to take away from Manning's game but the one element that Stewart comes back to is his pocket presence.

I think with him, it's hard to say just one thing but right now his pocket awareness. He can take hits, he doesn't get rattled, he'll hang in there and he can extend plays and make throws that most other quarterbacks can't. That rare ability that a play is never over. If he gets flushed outside, he can square his body up, he's a tremendous athlete."in the nation are in pursuit of quarterback prospect Arch Manning, who has begun to schedule visits to potential colleges.
