Barkley Nabs More Awards
As Penn State readies for the Fiesta Bowl on Dec. 30, the accolades continue to roll in for running back Saquon Barkley. Barkley was selected as an Associated Press first-team All-American. He was selected as an “all-purpose player.” The first-team running backs chosen were Stanford’s Bryce Love and San Diego State’s Rashaad Penny. Wisconsin’s Jonathan Taylor and Auburn’s Kerryon Johnson were second-teamers, while Southern California’s Ronald Jones and Florida Atlantic’s Devin Singletary were named to the third team.
