The Griffin twins, Shaquill Griffin and Shaquem Griffin are known are some of the fan favorites for the Seattle Seahawks! These two are great guys, always smiling, and always producing on the field. They have been known to also give back to the community. Well, today they gave back to their Alma Mater, the University of Central Florida in giving a commencement speech virtually to the graduates.
The identical twins, who both play for the Seattle Seahawks, delivered an unscripted, eight-minute commencement speech for the university’s virtual graduation ceremony that focused on understanding self-worth and overcoming adversity.
“You’ve got to know your worth, know the sacrifices you made to get here today to graduate,” Shaquill said. “You all earned it. You all deserve it. … Now, it’s time to just find your purpose. What’s the reason why you did all this? What’s the reason why you sacrificed so much time — so much time away from family — to be able to get this next exam done, to make sure you have the best grades so you can achieve whatever you want to achieve?
“So find your purpose. Find what makes you happy. Find what you love and take full advantage of it.”
Man, we love these guys!
Never forget Shaquem Griffin with 20 reps on the bench. A pretty special NFL Combine moment.
