Saquon Barkley High School Highlights
A multi-sport athlete, Barkley also played basketball and ran track at Whitehall, winning gold medals in the 100-meter dash and long jump at the Eastern Pennsylvania Conference Championships. His strength was obviously in football, however, rushing for 1,856 yards and 31 touchdowns in his senior season. He originally committed to Rutgers, but eventually changed to Penn State, where he saw the field early on as a true freshman.
He ran for at least 1,000 yards in all three of his NCAA seasons, amassing a total of 5,038 yards from scrimmage and 51 touchdowns from 2015 to 2017. This led to him coming off the board as the No. 2 overall pick in the 2018 NFL Draft.
He also made an immediate impact with the New York Giants, leading the NFL with 2,028 yards from scrimmage while scoring 15 touchdowns in his rookie season. He was banged up in 2019, but still racked up 1,441 yards from scrimmage across 13 games. Giants fans have to be excited about the future of their offense with Barkley in the backfield.
