Saquon Barkley Wins ESPY's Best Breakthrough Athlete | Penn State Football News | Daily college student



Saquon won another prize.

Former Penn State running back has received the ESPY Award for Best Breakthrough Athlete.

The Giants of New York have had an impressive rookie season and were crowned NFL Rookie of the Year.

Barkley also won a round at the Pro Bowl, was a selection of first-team All-Pro and the FedEx Ground player of the year.

Barkley won the trophy against Naomi Osaka, US Open and Australian Open Champion Christian Yelich, who plays for the Milwaukee Brewers and Trae Young of the Atlanta Hawks.

The ESPY is an annual distinction presented by ABC and ESPN, which means "Annual Sports Performance Award".

The first ESPY was awarded in 1993 and has since become an annual event.

A portion of the proceeds from the event is donated to the V Foundation, a charity created by the late Jim Valvano to promote cancer research.
