Saquon Barkley Offering Free Virtual Training For Athletes

Former Penn State football running back Saquon Barkley is teaming up with Nike and a few NFL stars to provide free virtual training programs for young athletes.

The program, named “11-Online,” was developed to provide young athletes with a virtual training camp amid the coronavirus pandemic. All 32 NFL teams contributed to provide instruction guides and videos for every football position.

If you’re a running back, you can click on the running back section and look through each slide. Once you get to Barkley’s section, he’ll take you through his gauntlet of footwork and ball security drills to help you become a better ball carrier (and beef up those quads!).

Barkley will walk viewers through four different drills, including high knee drills and ball security workouts. Each video tutorial lasts between 50 seconds and two minutes. If you take part in his drills, you might will be able to jump over people just like Barkley does.

Barkley isn’t the only NFL star taking part, though. Participants can work out alongside Christian McCaffrey, Aaron Donald, Odell Beckham Jr., and George Kittle, just to name a few.

This is now Barkley’s latest step taken to help folks out amid the coronavirus pandemic. Earlier this year, he partnered with Pepsi to fight child hunger through No Kid Hungry.
