Ahead of Friday night’s preseason game between the Chicago Bears and New York Giants, star running back Saquon Barkley took time out to play catch with a young fan.

Here’s video of Barkley giving some Giants fans a thrill before the game.

First of all, that’s just a really cool gesture by the second-year star. Secondly, what an arm on that kid! And that was some impressive spin, too.

Barkley won’t play Friday night, even though he’s fully suited up and wearing some sweet custom cleats. But he’s clearly ready for the regular season to begin, and he’s getting his fans pumped up for the action, too.
