Coming into Friday night's game, Arch Manning was just 110 yards away from breaking Eli's career passing record (7,268 yards) at Isidore Newman School in New Orleans.

Arch broke Eli's passing yards, along with Peyton's record of 93 career touchdowns, after locking in five passing touchdowns in the first half.

The Louisiana native finished the game with 356 passing yards and seven passing touchdowns in a 52-22 win for his high school program.

Currently, Manning is the No. 1 overall player in the 2023 recruiting class and the No. 1 quarterback in the nation.

Standing at 6-foot-3, Arch is the grandson of NFL hall of Famer Archie Manning, and the HS senior continues to make headlines even after ending one of the most followed college football recruitments in recent history.

Arch's widely covered recruiting visits included, Georgia, Alabama, and Ole Miss amongst others.

In June, Arch decided to carve his path in football away from his family's history at Ole Miss by committing to Texas.

With four more regular games left in his high school season, Arch will have plenty of time to set hard-to-beat records and create more highlight reels before hitting the field at DKR Texas Memorial Stadium as a Longhorn next fall.
