Robert Griffin Jr. has been a father for 27 of his 47 years on this earth. The beginning, with all its thrills and wonder, featured that awakening all new parents experience. Children, it turns out, come with no instruction booklet. Somehow the manufacturer always leaves that out of the box.
His relentless drive to excel merges the elements of Robert Griffin III — the supremely gifted athlete, the quiet kid from central Texas, the hopeless romantic, the charismatic leader, the passionate student — into one package. He is RG3.
"You always give credit where credit is due — to high school coaches, college coaches — but my dad, the foundation that he built with me, is where all of this came from," Robert III said. "The speed, the determination, the mindset, just the natural belief that you can do anything you put your mind to, it all comes from my dad."
