As the top-ranked high school football recruit in the country, Arch Manning was always due to receive an incredible amount of national attention this season. His pursuit, and passing, of uncles Peyton and Eli Manning in the Isidore Newman (New Orleans, La.) record books certainly added to the allure of what his potential will be after he graduates from high school later this year. After moving ahead of Peyton and Eli as Newman's all-time leader in passing yards and touchdowns, he still has the rest of his senior season to play, which continues this week against Bell Chasse (Belle Chasse, La.) on Friday at 8 p.m. ET. Follow the action here and don't miss a minute.
The Greenies suffered their first defeat of the season two weeks ago against Many (Many, La.), but responded with a decisive 30-point win over Pearl River last week. Manning was brilliant in the win over the Rebels and threw for seven touchdowns, and he'll look to deliver another top performance on Saturday against Belle Chasse.

What you need to know about Arch Manning
After a disappointing showing against Many, where Manning completed just 8-of-20 passes for a meager 80 yards, he responded in a big way against Pearl River. Against the Rebels, Manning completed 17-of-28 passes for 356 yards and seven touchdowns, which put him at just over 7,430 career passing yards. Peyton Manning finished his Newman career with 7,207 and by the time Eli was done, he had 7,389 passing yards.
With the family school record chase behind him, Manning can focus solely on the remainder of his senior season. He is the top overall prospect in the 247Sports national football recruiting rankings, and a clear consensus five-star prospect. Over the summer, he ended his recruitment with a commitment to the University of Texas, and chose the Longhorns over other national powers Alabama and Georgia. Manning has passed for 1,163 yards and 20 touchdowns through five games this season. Follow Arch Manning at MaxPreps now.

Newman vs. Belle Chasse preview
Arch Manning only needed 130 yards to pass Peyton Manning on the Greenies' all-time passing yards list, and 315 to pass Eli, which he did in one fell swoop last Friday against the Rebels. Manning completed 60% of his passes for 356 yards as Newman charged to its fourth win of the season. He could be in line for a similar showing against the Cardinals on Friday, after they gave up 61 combined points in wins against Vandebilt Catholic (Houma, La.) and Salmen (Slidell, La.) ahead of their first loss last week to Franklinton (Franklinton, La.).
Belle Chasse's best weapon on offense is running back Jaedon Voisin, who ran for over 325 yards two weeks ago against Salmen. Voisin should be the centerpiece of Belle Chasse's game plan once again, with the intent to keep the Cardinals offense on the field and Manning off of it. The Cardinals effectiveness with its passing attack has ebbed and flowed, but senior quarterback Stone Meyers has managed the offense under center.
The main player that Manning needs to keep an eye out for on the defensive side of the ball is defensive back Jeremiah Moses. The Louisiana commit is the Cardinals' most notable recruit on the field, but even he can't be expected to cover up all of Newman's pass-catchers. Kai Donaldson is the top receiver for Manning, and the 6-4, 200-pound target hauled in three touchdown passes last week. He'll be Manning's first option again, as both teams battle for their fifth victory. You can follow the matchup at MaxPreps.
