Borough should honor Barkley

To the Editor:

I am writing this letter to raise awareness in the Coplay community about the importance of honoring Saquon Barkley for his achievements and contributions not only athletically, but as an outstanding young man, role model and citizen.

To have a parade and present him with the key to the city and rename the street he grew up on after him would be a great way to honor him.

Saquon has never forgotten where he came from, and the roots he planted in Coplay speak volumes to this town’s youth by setting an example of integrity, dedication and the mindset that you can achieve any dream you seek if you are willing to sacrifice. That is what it takes to be the best — never settle and never stop believing in yourself no matter how hard the road to success may get.
