I played one year on the baseball team with Rod. He once pitched a one hitter and lost O-1. Loved watching him play basketball. A great role model. He practiced hand/eye coordination playing ping pong and improved his leaping by jumping a broom placed between two chairs.

I remember watching him on television in ACC games as a kid. He was dominate, I cannot imagine why he didn't make it in the NBA atleast a few seasons. He could attack with power, speed, and shoot the ball. He was like a man among boys in college. At the time I didn't even know he was from fairmont I grew up near there.

I was lucky enough to watch Rod Griffin play for Wake at the old Winston-Salem Coliseum. He was a true power player, and when he decided he was going to take the ball to the basket other players would be advised to get out of his way or pay the price. I never understood why he didn't make it in the NBA. He was only 6-7, but played a lot bigger. I remember his final home game when they gave him his framed jersey. Sad day when Rod Griffin played his final game for the Old Gold and Black. He was special to watch, and it was a lot of fun being a Wake Forest fan when Rod Griffin was in Winston. I hope he's had a great life since finishing college.

I played for Davidson College nack in the day - and my senior year we played Wake at Wake - and toward the end of the game Rod Griffin came down on a fast break and dunked so hard that the ball hit me on the back of the head and bounced about 10 rows up into the stands under the basket. I had to go get it to in-bounds the ball. It was embarrassing but one of the most awesome moments of my career!
