Fiesta Bowl, Saquon Barkley (26) run

Penn State running back Saquon Barkley (26) runs the ball during the 47th Fiesta Bowl matchup held at the University of Phoenix in Glendale, AZ on Saturday, Dec. 30, 2017. The Nittany Lions defeated the Huskies, 35-28.

Saquon has won yet another award.

The former Penn State running back was awarded an ESPY for best breakthrough athlete.

The New York Giants running back had an impressive rookie season and was crowned NFL rookie of the year.

Barkley also earned a trip to the Pro Bowl, was a first-team All-Pro selection and the FedEx Ground Player of the Year.

Barkley won the award over Naomi Osaka, the U.S. Open and Australian Open champion, Christian Yelich, who plays for the Milwaukee Brewers and Trae Young of the Atlanta Hawks.

The ESPY’s are an annual accolade presented by ABC and ESPN, which stands for “Excellence in Sports Performance Yearly Award.”

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

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.
