Griffith was also an accomplished tennis player, where he was a three time region champion.
Griffith earned a scholarship to play football for the Alabama Crimson Tide, where he was part of Two National Championship teams and four SEC Championships. The team won an incredible 51 games in four years, which is the most in a four-year stretch by any college football team in history. Adam executed a perfect on-side kick in the national championship game that helped Nick Saban-coached Alabama defeat Clemson for its 16th National Championship.
Graduating with a bachelor’s degree in just three years, Adam Griffith made the SEC Honor Roll all three years and was the Lou Groza Star of the Week two times.
