Griffen is from Joplin, Missouri and attends high school there. Griffen was a stand out player during his career at Joplin High School. He is a center back and was named to the Class 3 Southwest All-Region team this past fall. He also received all conference and all district honors. He was also recently named to the All-Ozarks 1st Team by the Springfield News-Leader.
“We are excited to have Griffen join our program next fall. He should step right in and earn a lot of playing time. He is a great kid on and off the field,” stated Coach Harrison.
