My name is Bryce Griggs and I am a Junior at Piedmont College located in Demorest, Georgia. I was born and raised in Kansas and I moved to Georgia my junior year of high school. I am 20 years of age and I was born on May 26, 1998. Sports is a huge part of my life and I enjoy doing the sports that I did and still do today. I also enjoy watching college football and watching the Braves MLB baseball team. My favorite college football team is the Texas Longhorns.
The sports that I have played are baseball, football, wrestling, cross-country, and track. I tried football in middle school but the sport just wasn’t for me. I played baseball for 13 years, but unfortunately I stopped playing after a serious head injury my junior year of high school. Going into high school I had no intensions of wrestling, but after I was talked into trying it, I wrestled my freshman and sophomore year. Throughout high school, I enjoyed running cross-country, to me it was fun and a great stress reliever from school and the things that caused stress in my life. I was a four sport letterman and honor student. My senior year of high school I decided that I wanted to further my education and running career in college. As I was looking for colleges that I could run for while getting a strong education, Piedmont was an option. I filled out a questionnaire and the head coach, Coach Jenkins, contacted me after the state cross-country race. Now, I am running for Piedmont College and it has been the best two years of running that I have experienced. I now have the school record in the men’s 8k for cross country which is 26:00.
I enjoy running, but I also like to listen to music, draw, and do photography. I do not really have a favorite genre of music but I enjoy Christian and 80’s rock. I am a decent drawer, but I have to look at something in order for me to draw anything decent. My favorite thing to draw is people and some landscapes. I have always enjoyed taking pictures so photography is something I love to do when I have time. Usually I will have a camera with me on trips or when I go hiking. I do not only run for Piedmont, but I am also the photographer for the track team. Photography is an art that I enjoy and I like to share my photography with other people. I hope that one day I can further my photography and make it my career. I also love hanging out with my friends and my girlfriend, Ansleigh Harrison.
