Arch Manning impresses fans in his college football debut
Arch Manning's first-ever career pass made waves across social media well into Saturday morning, and fans are going nuts over his debut.
"His release is the fastest I've seen for that age. He's going to be really really good," another noted. "Especially with a few designed runs. Even that batted deep pass was better that Quinn's and that one dropped slant in the endzone was perfect."
"Arch Manning could be the total package. Mobility like gramps, arm like dad & [uncles], and a Manning football mind. Mos def has the pedigree," another fan wrote.
