Trey Griffey

By C. Trent Rosecrans


You want to feel old?

Trey Griffey -- son of Ken Griffey Jr. and grandson of Ken Griffey -- has made a verbal commitment to play football at the University of Arizona.

That's right, The Kid's kid, is old enough to play college football.

Ken Griffey Jr. texted CBSSports.com with the news Monday night, joking that the scholarship will save him a little dough.

The youngest Griffey is a 6-foot-2, 190-pound wide receiver that set records at Dr. Phillips High School in Orlando this past season. Griffey caught 74 passes for 970 yards this past season, his only season at Dr. Phillips, both school records. He also had a 13-catch, 188-yard night to break the school's single-game records, held by Florida State wide receiver Kenny Shaw and Alabama running back Dee Hart, respectively. He was also selected to play at the Under Armour All-American Game earlier this month.

Griffey was also recruited by Arizona State, Iowa State, Michigan State and Washington State.

Trey Griffey isn't the last Griffey you'll be hearing from in sports -- Ken's daughter, Taryn, led her team to a state basketball championship last year as a freshman and is already considered one of the top recruits for the Class of 2014. Taryn Griffey recently broke a Dr. Phillips record with nine 3-pointers -- on just nine attempts. The future Hall of Famer also brags about the speed and elusiveness of his youngest, Tevin, who is also a standout on the football field, but also has the most interest in baseball of the three Griffey kids.

Why is Keyshawn even in this picture?  Did he vulture a photo op with Kid Jr and Kid the Trey?  Crop feature should have been utilized.  Junior never juiced.  He wouldn't have been hurt the entire second half of his career if he did.

Why don't people understand that almost all athletes gain weight once their playing career is over?  When you are working out year round and playing sports (not softball for you fat doughy non-athlethe types) and watching your diet as well as being young in age, of course you are going to be in good physical shape.  Once they retire, most of these athlethes get lazy and do nothing for awhile (that's called enjoying your retirement and letting your body heal up).  Enjoy your children successes, Kid, it was great watching you play!

junior's gonna have to reign in those man boobs here quick before they start sagging...  i hear lane bryant is a good place to shop for the pleasantly plump.

the kids kid also needs to stay away from keyshawn if he wants a future at all.  he sucked in the nfl and he sucks on espn.

A wildcat welcome to young Griff. Couldn't be happier to have this family in Tucson, especially since the kid was one of my favz.

Geez Jr. time to sign on as a Subway pitchman or P90X or something.  It`s still better than Baroid Bonds.  Miss ya Kid, good luck in football don`t subscribe to the Keyshawn way.
