Early life

Atiim Kiambu “Tiki” Barber took birth in Roanoke, Virginia, on April 7, 1975. He and his identical twin brother were both born five weeks early. James “J.B.” Barber, Barber’s father, was a standout running back for Virginia Tech whom eventually played in the NFL, therefore he was born into a sporting family. Nevertheless, Tiki’s father had nothing to do with his upbringing and provided the family with very little money. To provide for her three boys, his mother occasionally served three jobs at once.

Tiki received an academic scholarship and enrolled in the University of Virginia after finishing high school. Barber became interested in the school’s sporting program despite his intense concentration on his business studies. He improved the school’s football squad and set new benchmarks for the track and field program. In a single season, he frequently carried for more than 1,300 yards.


Barber was regarded as a “third-down” running back when he signed up with the New York Giants in 1997. Tiki was fortunate to get his moment to shine as other running backs began to play poorly. However, he had a poor start to his career. He was not a prominent player in his first few seasons due to injuries and subpar play. Barber was given a new six-year deal in 2000 after being a dependable player for the Giants. Tiki thereafter began to contribute significantly to the offensive of the club. In one of his better performances during this time, he ran for 203 yards against Philadelphia Eagles, who at the time had one of the league’s top defenses. Barber gained a career-high 15 touchdowns in 2003 amid the Giants’ terrible performance.

Tiki Barber and Eli Manning both helped the squad achieve a series of victories in the 2005 season. For the first time period of five years, they won the NFC East, and Barber set a record in against with the Kansas City Chiefs by rushing for 220 yards. With 1,860 total running yards at the end of that season, he was the second-best player in the league.
