Perseverance definitely pays off. We are proud to share that former Central Florida pass rusher Shaquem Griffin has officially signed an endorsement deal with Nike.

As a prospect considered to be selected in either the second or third round of the 2018 NFL Draft, Griffin has defied odds playing football with only one hand. He earlier wowed with a dominate performance at the NFL Scouting Combine after originally not getting invited.
Since, the NFL corrected that by inviting Griffin to attend the draft. Ahead of signing with a potential new NFL franchise in the near future, it was awesome for Nike to reach out to Griffin.
Over Griffin’s four seasons at UCF, he recorded 18.5 sacks, 195 combined tackles and three interceptions. His journey up to the draft has definitely been a special one to follow.
We wish Griffin all the best as he begins his NFL career.
