As chronicled on this site since we first started creating URLs last summer, Saquon Barkley is an athletic dynamo.
He's broken records, slipped through a wormhole, received college football's top "freak" designation, dusted Wisconsin's TJ Watt in the Big Ten Championship (we, as a website, are obligated to reference that play whenever possible), and clocked a 4.33 40-yard dash.
At Penn State's 2017 Lift for Life event on Saturday in Holuba Hall, Barkley went beast yet again. The junior running back and potential top-5 pick in the 2018 NFL Draft bench pressed 225 pounds an eye-bulging 30 times during the charity weightlifting competition.
Yes, friends, 30 reps.
Here's a second angle of Barkley tossing up the plates:

No. 26 wasn't finished there with his feats of strength. Would you like to see Barkley overturn a massive tire alongside guard Steven Gonzalez? Sure? Here ya go:

Is it gametime? Is the season close to starting? I'm sweating.
