Video: Ali Barkley highlights
Senior highlights of Whitehall running back.
is the last player in Whitehall (Pa.)
school history to wear No. 21 and the senior running back sent the number out in style.
The school announced in 2018 it would retire the jersey, once worn by Ali's older brother — New York Giants running back Saquon Barkley. He joins four-time Super Bowl champion Matt Millen and two-time Super
Bowl champion Dan Koppen as the only other players to have their jersey
retired at Zephyr Stadium.
As for Ali Barkley, he finished his senior season with more than 1,100 yards rushing. He had big shoes to fill, but carved his own path and remains one of the most underrated players from the Class of 2020.
According to his 247Sports player page
, he doesn't have any offers but by judging by the highlight tape it's evident he can play at the next level.
He does it all. Has great vision, can make plays out of the backfield, good speed, nice agility and is a legit blocker. Most of all he's a great leader on and off the field, like his older brother.
With National Signing Day just past, programs still looking for a running back might want to take a look at the last guy to wear No. 21 from Whitehall.
