Saquon Barkley Named 2020 New York Giants Captain

Saquon Barkley will serve as one of the New York Giants’ six captains for the 2020 season, the team announced Tuesday afternoon.

This is the second consecutive year Barkley has served as one of the team’s leaders.

Barkley is the only returning captain for the Giants. Additionally, he’s the only Giants running back to ever serve as a team captain since the team began naming season-long captains in 2007.

Coincidentally, he was also a team captain during his time in Happy Valley. Barkley was one of the eight team captains on Penn State football’s 2017 team, serving alongside fellow offensive players Trace McSorley and DaeSean Hamilton.

Barkley battled through injuries in 2019 but managed to total 1,003 rushing yards and six rushing touchdowns. Additionally, he hauled in 52 receptions for 438 yards and two touchdowns.
