Saquon Barkley Supporting Homeless Youth In Community, Teammates Despite Season-Ending Injury
New York Giants running back Saquon Barkley suffered a season-ending right knee torn ACL injury earlier this season per ESPN. But, that’s not stopping him from making an impact in the community off the field and supporting his teammates on the field.
Barkley retweeted his team’s post after they got a big win over the Seahawks on the road:
“Love seeing my guys ball!!!!,” Barkley tweeted on November 15:
The retweet game has been strong with Barkley. Not only for supporting teammates but also a cause he is a “chairman” of in supporting homeless youth:
If you’d like to help out Covenant House, which “provides comprehensive residential care and related services to help New Jersey’s youth who have suffered from abuse, neglect, abandonment, homelessness, and human trafficking build a life for themselves that is good”, you can do so here.
Barkley’s shave game is also strong. The Giants running back recently announced he teamed up with Gillette to design a limited edition razor where you can enter to win one. With every entry, Barkley said Gillette will donate $1 to Covenant House up to $26,000. If you want to help support Covenant House and also enter to win that razor, you can do so here.
Barkley’s been supporting his Giants teammates and also anything good related to his alma mater, the Penn State Nittany Lions’ football team, by retweeting posts:
Barkley has been rolling with the punches this season, choosing to not let adversity deter him.
All he can do is shrug it off.
Just like he posted about eight weeks ago: “Life is always gonna throw crazy challenges your way… but through the toughest times.. who are u during those challenges #sowhatnowwhat🤷🏾♂️,” Barkley said.
