New York Giants rookie Saquon Barkley buys parents a house
As a small child Saquon Barkley made a promise to his parents. He would buy them a house. It turned out that he made it before most graduate schools.
Of all the things the former Penn State star, who fell back in the 2018 NFL draft and was the New York Giants’ second pick, did on the grate, this one seemed to have a whole different and deeper meaning.
He posted it on social media Tuesday night.
The house appears to be near Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, near the place where Barkley, who was born in Bronx, New York, attended and became Mr. Pennsylvania Football at Whitehall High School.
A consensus All-American in 2017, the 6-foot, 235-pound back garnered 5,557 yards all-purpose and 54 touchdowns in his stellar three-year college career with the Nittany Lions.
While expectations are high for the 21-year-old’s rookie campaign at the Giants, Barkley can now be sure that he has fulfilled a promise and that his parents will have a new home.
