Looking at some old articles they were easily 1 & 2 in everything I seen, with Booty over Manning in most but not all.
Booty = Parade All-American Player of Year, USA Today Player of Year, Superprep #1 QB, was Superprep #2 QB when he signed again after baseball.
Manning = Gatorade ALL-American Player of Year, Superprep #2 QB (#8 Overall)
Seems like Parade was most prestigious at time, followed by Gatorade, then USA Today, and Superprep. Yea it's easy to see why you'd hear more about about Payton if you were in New Orleans with them both being huge national recruits, but almost every article I've seen doesn't mention 1 without mentioning the other. Even the article for Peyton winning Gatorade Player of the Year mentions Booty in the first paragraph.
