In Barkley's own words, the ability to take care of his family means everything to him.

Something I promised my parents, ever since I was a young kid. Finally be able to achieve that goal is the most amazing feeling. Every kid out there that has a dream continue to keep your head down and work your butt off, great things will come along the way.  - Saquon Barkley
