Very quickly, the son of future baseball Hall of Famer Ken Griffey Jr. is carving out a niche and making a name for himself in the sports world.
Saturday was yet another step in that direction.
Arizona was one of myriad teams to hold its annual spring game and was somewhat shoved to the backburner by some higher-profile programs across the country. Trey Griffey, though, ensured the Wildcats will at least get some love on the late-night highlight shows.
At some point during Arizona’s spring game, the redshirt sophomore wide receiver went and, well, did this one-handed thing:
Well, that’s certainly laudable, in a that’s-just-ridiculous kind of way.
While he’s known more for his famous surname, Griffey came on at the end of last season and showed that he could very well be a future weapon for the Wildcats. The receiver, a three-star member of UA’s 2012 recruiting class, ended 2013 starting the final four games and finished the year with 14 receptions for 170 yards and a pair of touchdowns. Both of those scores came in Arizona’s 42-19 AdvoCare V100 Bowl throttling of Boston College in late December last year.
