Griffin in his essay, “ I have made lifelong memories and lessons while playing football. Although the sports have taught me countless lessons, the true joy of competing is the relationships you develop with others. Being coachable, being a leader, caring for others, and being there in victory or defeat are lessons that will translate directly into my future workplace. I look forward to using these lessons and skills to continue to be a leader and help others.”
