Shaquem Griffin Biography

Shaquem Griffin was born just minutes after his twin, Shaquill. Both boys went on to become remarkable athletes in high school and college at the University of Central Florida (UCF), and both play in the NFL after being drafted by the same team—but Shaquem did it all with just one hand.

At birth, Griffin experienced a rare condition called amniotic band syndrome and his hand ultimately had to be amputated when he was four years old. His family refused to treat him any differently than his brother, and from the time he could say the words, his motto has been, “please don’t tell me what I can’t do.”

Griffin’s collegiate accomplishments include first-team All-American Athletic Conference linebacker, AAC Defensive Player of the Year, National Champion and Peach Bowl MVP. After a historic performance at the NFL Combine, he was selected as a linebacker by Seattle, playing for the Seahawks from 2018 – 2020. His most memorable on-the-field highlight was sacking current NFL MVP Aaron Rodgers during the playoffs in 2020. He signed with the Miami Dolphins for the 2021 season and retired from the NFL in 2022.

Griffin’s story is captured in the Emmy award-winning short film NFL 360: I am Shaquem Griffin and in the biography "Inseparable: How Family and Sacrifice Forged a Path to the NFL."

  • Your Best Never Comes Easy

    People ask how Shaquem Griffin defied the odds to play collegiate football. How he managed to become the AAC “Defensive Player of the Year,” despite having just one hand. They’re amazed that he made history playing in the NFL—the world’s most competitive professional sports league, which honored him with the “NFL Game Changer Award.” Answers include the Griffin family values—their unconditional support and sacrifice for each other. Answers include the unbreakable bond between Shaquem and his twin brother, Shaquille, and the pledge they made at the age of eight to stand by each other, come hell or high water. And answers include Shaquem Griffin himself. In his own humble words, “Nothing Comes Easy”—and his belief that nothing worth having comes without some sort of fight. It’s an almost unbelievable success story—anchored by family and driven by commitment, belief, and purpose.
