>WTOP's Jason Fraley ranks the Top 10 Super Bowl HalftimesJason Fraley Shaquem Griffin just keeps on proving the doubters wrong as the star linebacker at UCF received his invitation to participate at the NFL Combine. The second-team All-American is looking to become the first player in the modern era to be drafted despite having just one hand. Griffin shared the moment over Twitter:#NFLcombine bound!! 馃檹馃従馃檹馃従馃檹馃従 #AgainstAllOdds— shaquem griffin (@Shaquemgriffin) January 30 , 2018As you can see in the video, Griffin is wearing his Reese's Senior Bowl sweatshirt. Griffin impressed NFL coaches leading up to the All-Star game this past weekened and that's one of the reasons of his combine invitation.But what you can't see in the video is Griffin's left hand which was amputated at four years old. He was born with amniotic band syndrome which caused the fingers on his left hand to not fully develop. Griffin suffered through pain for the first few years of his life until one day when he had enough and grabbed a butcher knife at the age of four years old. He planned on cutting his fingers off himself at the age of four Walter Payton Jersey Youth , but his mother intervened. The next day his parents scheduled the amputation of his fingers. The amputation didn't end Griffin's ability to play sports and he became standout player at UCF alongside his twin brother, Shaquill Griffin. Shaquill was not born with聽any deformations with his hands and played cornerback with the Golden Knights before being drafted by the Seattle Seahawks in 2017.Unlike Shaquill Logan Woodside Jersey , Shaquem redshirted his first year at the school so he was always one year behind his brother despite being just one minute younger. Shaquem made the most of his extra year in school as in 2017 he was a second-team All-American, the Peach Bowl Defensive MVP and helped lead UCF to the first undefeated season in school history..
