As the grandson of Archie Manning and nephew of Peyton and Eli, Arch Manning has a wealth of football knowledge at his fingertips. However, the high school quarterback has also been looking outside his family for help in shaping his game.

In an interview with Steve Wiltfong of 247Sports, the younger Manning named Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes and potential No. 1 pick Trevor Lawrence as two of his influences.

"Just how they impact their own offenses so much," Manning said. "Mahomes can make every throw on the field with his dramatics and moves around, and Trevor, he just reminds me a lot of Peyton. He has total command of the offense. Those two things I like to put in my game for sure."

Manning described his grandfather and uncles as "the ultimate competitors" and touched on the impact they've had on him as a football player.

"I mean, the way they go about their business, Peyton, the way he attacks the film room and outside of football and then Eli, the way he can be clutch and never really get fazed, I look up to that a lot and take after that," he said.

"My grandfather especially, he's a little different with the way he played quarterback from his two sons; he can scramble around the pocket and how he kind of respects the game. He's been around a while and keeps up with everyone, and he's just a great guy and great guy to have in the football community."

Manning is 18-3 as a starter at Isidore Newman School in New Orleans and is 247Sports' top-ranked quarterback recruit in the 2023 class. He currently has nine scholarship offers.
