Shaquem Griffin appears in Sports Illustrated
Lakewood senior Shaquem Griffin continues to gain national attention.
The UCF recruit appeared in the Faces in the Crowd feature in the latest Sports Illustrated (in my mailbox a few days ago, or online over here).
Griffin drew praise for his interception at the recent International Bowl in Texas. That play got him a shout-out in SportsCenter’s Top 10, too.
Griffin is the second Tampa Bay athlete who’s appeared in the weekly feature in the last year. Hernando baseball player Christian Arroyo (a Florida commit) earned the honor after being named the MVP of an international baseball tournament.
