Shaquem Griffin Biography

A fifth-round pick of the Seattle Seahawks (141st overall), Shaquem Griffin was born July 20, 1995 and is a former linebacker for the UCF Knights. Shaquem and his twin brother Shaquill both played for UCF.


Shaquem Griffin was born to Tangie and Terry Griffin on July 20, 1995, less than two minutes after Shaquill. Shaquem was born with amniotic band syndrome affecting his left hand, causing his fingers on his left hand to not fully develop. At age four, his mother found him in the kitchen, attempting to use a butcher's knife to self-amputate his fingers due to the pain. His parents scheduled an amputation the next day. However, Griffin was able to continue playing sports without his left hand, competing in track, baseball, and football alongside his brother.


Shaquem and his brother Shaquill Griffin were both offered football scholarships at University of Central Florida by former coach George O'Leary. Griffin spent all four years at UCF totaling 17 sacks and 30 tackles for a loss. Griffin was named the 2018 Peach Bowl Defensive MVP and was the 2016 AAC Defensive Player of the Year. Griffin told Ralph Warner and NFL Network in November 2017 that he plans to continue his football career in the NFL. He won defensive MVP in the 2018 Peach Bowl vs Auburn.
