Arch Manning and the Newman Greenies have had three consecutive road games, but this week they return home to host Metairie Park Country Day in their first district game of the season.
Newman (5-1) escaped Belle Chasse with a 23-20 nail-biter in its last game thanks to a 43-yard touchdown pass from Manning with just 2:12 left on the clock.
Now, the Greenies will look to ride that momentum into their first Class 2A District 10 matchup of the year with a 4-4 Metairie Park County Day team that has won two in a row.

Newman senior quarterback Arch Manning is the grandson of former NFL quarterback Archie Manning, the nephew of Super Bowl winners Peyton and Eli Manning, and the No. 1 recruit in the class of 2023.
While the Texas commit doesn't have much left to prove in his final year of high school, he's putting together another impressive season as he helps Newman chase a Louisiana Class 2A state title.
Through six games this year, Manning has passed for 1,315 yards and 22 touchdowns, and run the ball for another two scores.
With Newman well rested this week coming off a bye, Manning and the Greenies will look to use their fresh legs to produce a similar result to last year's 49-21 victory over Metairie Park Country Day.
Friday's game marks the first district game of the year for both teams, and a win for either would leave them atop the district standings and holding the tiebreaker over the other.
