National Football League prospect clears 20 reps on the bench press with prosthetic hand

"That was an unbelievable feeling, and it makes you enjoy it that much more".

Why not? It didn't last long because his first run only took him 4.38 seconds to fly through it. "He acted all cool and stuff". Doesn't matter - I'm going to get it in though.

Are you kidding me? I might drop the phone or have to give it to my mom and she'll have to answer all the questions for me. I'm never going to step limitations. But there seems to be little doubt at this point that he'll get a shot to show he can do it. NFL Network analyst Mike Mayock suggested NFL teams will average the times in an evaluation of Griffin's speed, which host Rich Eisen backed up with the idea that teams do their own hand-timing of the 40-yard dash anyway. At the age of four, after he was found by his parents trying to remove his fingers with a butcher knife to alleviate the pain of the condition, he had his hand amputated the following day. The crowd watching him, which included a number of grizzled National Football League scouts and personnel folks, went absolutely bananas.

Though it seems illogical that a player with only one arm could be an effective defender, Griffin has adapted wonderfully, using his forearm to fend off opponents. What if I say, you have two hands, how can you play football?

When he first used the prosthesis, he said he couldn't even lift the weight bar.

"I called right after our bowl game and tried to see if I was invited", Griffin said weeks before learning the exciting news.

Progressive champion Sanders joins fight against Yemen war
Three senators have proposed a resolution that will force the Senate to vote on U.S. support for Saudi Arabia in the war in Yemen. USA military support for the Saudi-led war began under the Obama administration, but received little opposition at the time.

The 20 reps were the most he's ever done.

Ten, 11 - this was his personal best.

"My goal was six". "I feel really good hearing that from them".

"That just puts me one step closer to everything I need to accomplish". On Sunday, the former AAC Defensive Player of the Year impressed further by running the 40-yard dash with a now unofficial time of 4.38. If the official time stands, it is going down as the fastest time in 15 years for a linebacker.

What can't Shaquem Griffin do?
