The last NFL season, New York Giants running back Nike athlete Saquon Barkley received his very own model of the Air Trainer 3. What did it feel like have him pay homage you with the sneakers?
I blessed him with these shoes. It was like telling him"Grasshopper! It's my moment to carry this torch. And you have to be able to carry it with ease. I'm sure Saquon will be able to do a fine job of that. Saquon is a great kid. He reminds me of a number of my own. Runs with power and has his head straight. This is what impresses me the most. It's not his statistics. I love how he carries himself.
There will always be one Bo Jackson. But when you reflect upon some of the NFL running backs who've been after you, which of them remind you most of yourself?
I can come up with two examples -I can only think of two - Saquon and Derrick Henry -- on the brute strength, power and knowing how to navigate between the field and defense. They may not have the speed I had. But they have managed to make it work for them. They're extremely successful at what they do. This is why they're considered to be among the best running backs in the game today.
