Jordan Griffin helping secondary improve on and off the field

“He’s like the perfect person.”

That’s what junior safety Mike Edwards said this morning when describing sophomore cornerback Jordan Griffin.

“It’s not even about football. It’s like personal,” Edwards went on to say. “He doesn’t spend money. He saves money. He’s always just on his job. He’s goes to bed at a decent time, wakes up on time, gets here on time. He’s in his playbook all the time, watching film. He’s just the perfect person.”

Griffin, a former four-star prospect, didn’t have a major impact on the field during his freshman season. In eight games, he totaled just six tackles. With a year of experience under his belt, Griffin hopes to take the next step on the field in 2017. His work ethic will put him in a position to do that and it’s made a big impact on his veteran teammates.

“I think all of us have the same work ethic now,” said junior cornerback Derrick Baity. “Jordan (Griffin) was the one who really started that.”
