Ole Miss football head coach Lane Kiffin is getting creative in recruiting and throwing in a Gen Z touch. It’s no secret which star high school prospect he’s targeting.
For a brief period this week, Kiffin followed exactly two accounts: current Ole Miss quarterback Matt Corral, and 2023 prospect Arch Manning.

Derrick Henry reaches out to Kayleb Wagner after he breaks his Florida single-game rushing record

Kayleb Wagner made Florida high school football history last Friday, shattering Tennessee Titans running back Derrick Henry’s single-game rushing record with a 535-yard, six-touchdown performance in a Baker High School victory.
Wagner’s performance made national headlines and his story has served as an inspiration to people across the nation. The 6-foot-1, 205-pound junior running back was born without a left hand and part of his left forearm due to amniotic band syndrome and has still been able to dominate on the gridiron while also serving as a role model in his community.
Wagner has received countless congratulatory messages since etching his name into Florida’s high school football record book, but one stands out above all else. Henry, a former star at Yulee High School, himself reached out to Wagner on Instagram to congratulate him on breaking his record — one that had stood for nearly a decade

Georgia fans want Arch Manning — badly

Fans usually do their part to make a recruit feel at home during an unofficial visit, but not many can hold a candle to what some of the Georgia faithful pulled off for Arch Manning over the weekend.
Manning traveled to Athens on Saturday after his junior season debut to take in Georgia’s 40-13 win over South Carolina. Part of Georgia’s rabid fanbase was well aware that the five-star recruit was visiting for the game and sent a clear message that they want him to suit up for Kirby Smart in a couple of years.

Hamilton's QB vomited during the final TD pass of the wild comeback over Bishop Gorman

As if the Hamilton High School (Chandler, Ariz.) comeback victory over Bishop Gorman (Las Vegas) couldn’t get any crazier, Huskies quarterback Nicco Marchiol led the comeback while sick. Sick enough that he threw up during game play.
Sick enough that he vomited as the football was being snapped to him on the final touchdown throw of the night, the one that would end up putting the Huskies in position to complete a two-point conversion and complete the 25-24 comeback victory in which they scored 18 points in less than 70 seconds.
And of course they went for the two-point conversion
