We all have hopes and dreams, but some of us may have a disability that could make that dream almost unreachable. When it comes to UCF Linebacker Shaquem Griffin.
Born with Amniotic Band Syndrome, a prenatal condition in which a strand of amniotic membrane can wrap around and essentially strangle a fetal extremity, causing deformity that often results in amputation. He had to work that much harder than other kids on his little league football team. That included competing with his twin brother Shaquill who now plays with the Seattle Seahawks.
