Freshman Focus: Adrian Griffin shines at Archbishop Stepinac & is ready for AAU season with the PSA Cardinals

Q: What was it like to win the CHSAA championship as a freshman?
A: “To win a CHSSA championship my freshman year just gives me even more confidence in my game and the growth of this team and school,” he said.
Q: What was it like winning it all with your brother?
A: “Winning everything we could possibly win this year was truly a blessing for us and our team,” Griffin said. “Winning all the championships was everyone’s one goal at the beginning of the year. Winning a championship with my brother was a blessing and I will never forget that moment when he got off the court to end his high school career.”
Q: What did you learn from that experience?
A: “The things I learned from winning championships is that you have to practice and have the same mindset as champions every single day,” said Griffin. “We wouldn’t have those championships without our coaching staff having countless days of practices and all those little things like teachable moments as a individual or having confidence at the end of the game. This all makes a huge difference on how we approach a game.”
Q: How would you describe your game for someone that hasn’t seen you play before?
A: “In my game I’m really competitive and I will do anything to get a win,” said Griffin. “I always play like it’s my last game I’ll ever play, I’ve always had that drive to be great. I’m a player that is trying to do everything he can on the court like rebounding, assists, points and I sacrifice my ego for the team.”
