In total, Griffin not only led the ECC but also led Southwest Ohio in passing yards during the regular season, when he threw for 3,308 yards and 22 touchdowns for the Raptors. He added 271 yards rushing with seven TDs. His success continued during the playoffs when, in the first round, the Raptors beat Troy 44-7 and Griffin threw for 275 yards and four TDs and ran for 89 yards and one TD.

Last year as a junior, Griffin also put up some impressive numbers. He threw for a career-high 528 yards and six touchdowns in a 51-26 win over Lebanon and later had six touchdown passes and a rushing score in a 72-35 Raptors' win over Loveland. The all-star quarterback led the ECC in passing yards (3,895, a school record) and touchdowns (38), adding 506 yards and five TDs on the ground. He led the team to a 9-3 record, finishing as ECC runner-up and making it to the regional quarterfinals.

For his accomplishments last season, Griffin was recognized with many honors. He was first team all-ECC, first-team all-city Div. II (Enquirer), first-team all-SWO District and first-team all-Ohio Div. II. He also played a year of varsity basketball for the Raptors.

A Dean's List student who is active in community service, Griffin is planning to play at the next level but has not yet selected a college. His favorite athlete is Justin Fields, favorite entertainer is Kevin Hart, favorite book is Friday Night Lights, favorite movie is Remember the Titans and most-like-to-meet is LeBron James.

COACH'S QUOTE – "Griffin has an incredible work ethic that allows himself to play great in big games. He is a committed student-athlete who strives to be great in everything that he does."
— Evan Dreyer, Varsity Football Coach
