Missing football while the sports world is on hold? Try filling the void with some incredible throwback footage of Peyton Manning playing a high school football game in 1992.
Playing at Isidore Newman School in New Orleans, Manning led his team to a 34-5 record in his three seasons as the starting quarterback. Getting the good with the bad, here's a full game Manning played in the 1992 season.
Peyton Manning High School Highlights
Already wearing his trademark No. 18, Manning made some outstanding plays and showcased the potential he had, even at a young age, although his team came up short, suffering a 23-21 defeat in the LHSAA quarterfinals.
He continued to show off that potential at the collegiate level. A highly coveted recruit, he ultimately joined the Tennessee Volunteers, establishing himself as the greatest quarterback in school history. Manning threw for 11,201 yards and 89 touchdowns in four seasons with the Volunteers.
That domination was nothing compared to what he would go on to do at the NFL level. A seven-time first-team All-Pro and ridiculous five-time MVP, there's a legitimate argument to be made that Peyton is the greatest quarterback in NFL history. He finished his illustrious career with 71,940 passing yards and 539 touchdowns.
