    Griffin won the 118-pound NCAA championship in 1990, earning his second All-America honor that season. He also earned Big Ten titles in 1989 and 1990. He finished his career with a 156-21-1 (.879) record, marking the most wins ever for an NU wrestler. Griffin served as a captain for two NU squads, and qualified for the 1992 U.S. Olympic Team as an alternate.

    Griffin had three seasons of 40 or more wins (no other NU wrestler has ever had more than one), and his 43-win campaign in 1989 is the second-best in NU history. He also was a three-time winner of the Stuteville Award for most points and the Lupton Award for most takedowns.
