How’d he get to the Blue™?
Mr. Griffin went to the same high school as RB Andrew Van Buren and came along with Mr. Van Buren as a walk on. It definitely takes some sort of fortitude to try and walk on with a roster this particularly deep in the WR spot but give Griffin credit, he’s trying!
I mean, c’monnnnnnnnn.
Current footballer for the Tennessee Titans, Ryan Tannehill
He’s done some good on the academic side (the most important side, right?) with two Academic All-Mountain West honors and two Mountain West Scholar-Athlete nods. In 2020 he appeared in five games with one start. He had two catches against Colorado State for 12 yards.
To put it bluntly: special teams, probably. The wide receiving corp is, shall we say, stacked. There are guys who could probably start on any number of lower-tier G5 teams, let alone other Mountain West teams. Griffin has to go through all that just to see some time. And, being honest, ever rooting for the underdog, I hope he gets his time to shine. Until then? Yeah, special teams.
Is he on Twitter?
Ooooh buddy, yes he is!
Completely made up fact
Griffin is a skilled yodeler who enjoys the activity year around and will often practice during down times. He will oftentimes past the time with Basenjis that come yodel with him.
