High Five: Washington football player is ready to go

We asked area athletes five questions so you can get to know them a little better.

Today’s guest is Washington High School football senior Knowledge Griffin.

 

  1. How old were you when you first played football and who got you started?

Knowledge: I was 13 when my friend Malcolm encouraged me to start playing football. I wanted to earlier, but my grandmother wouldn’t let me until I got older.

 

  1. Where do you see yourself in five years?

Knowledge: I’d like to have a family, get started in my career as an engineer and be a member of the National Guard Reserve Unit.

 

  1. How would you find a needle in a haystack?

Knowledge: There’s no easy or fast way to do that, so I’d start pulling out the hay little by little and looking through it. The longest process is usually the best, no shortcuts.

 

  1. How would you describe yourself in one word?

Knowledge: Determined. You have to push yourself to achieve your goals. It’s easy to give up, but that won’t help you.

 

  1. What is your favorite class and how will it help you in the future?

Knowledge: Civics and Economics because my teacher is always willing to help me. We learn about our rights and the Constitution, so that will help guide me in the future.
