Saquon Barkley. He has all the perfect attributes of a running back yet remains humble. He worked for everything he has.

My teammates and I grew up playing together, we’re all close and have fun. It’s been a tradition since any of us can remember.

When I got in the game as a freshmen because we were beating the team by 40 something, I scored a touchdown after coach said we should fall first.
