The Legacy of Robert Griffin III
Robert Griffin III is a legend in the making. After a Heisman-winning college career, he joined the National Football League as the starting quarterback for the Washington Redskins. In his rookie season, RG3 was quickly embraced by "Redskins Nation" and took the country by storm, becoming one of the most recognizable and respected athletes on the gridiron. His incredible story is unfolding before us.
And it is a story that began at Baylor University...
Baylor fans know it well; he followed Head Coach Art Briles to Baylor, and over the course of four seasons (including one sidelined by injury), he made his mark on the football program, on the University and on Baylor Nation. He led the Bears to two consecutive bowl games, locked down a 10-win season and broke record after record on his way to winning the Heisman Trophy. Even beyond the field, RG3 excelled in the classroom -- earning his degree in just 3 years and very nearly completing his Masters -- served his community and supported his fellow students and student-athletes. Griffin is a true example of what it means to be an exceptional leader and a successful student-athlete.
As he aspires to still greater heights in his professional career, Griffin continues to support Baylor University, using his platform in the national spotlight to extol the virtues of a distinctly Baylor education and to rally support for his beloved Baylor Bears.
Your gift, of any size, to the Robert Griffin III Quarterback Scholarship will honor the legacy of RG3 and help ensure the future of the great Baylor student-athletes to come.
