About Shaquem Griffin

The Seattle Seahawks shocked the football world in 2018 when they chose Shaquem Griffin in the 5th round of the draft. Recipient of the 2019 NCAA Inspiration Award, Shaquem initially gained attention for being a standout athlete despite being born with amniotic band syndrome, causing the fingers on his hand not to grow, leading to immense pain and forcing an amputation. After a standout NCAA career at University of College Florida and wow-ing NFL scouts with his athletic prowess, the linebacker became the face of the Gillette “Your Best Never Comes Easy” campaign. Now a football star with nearly 500K Instagram followers, Shaquem and his Seahawks made the playoffs in 2018.
