Chloe Griffin, a 2021 graduate of Seminole Ridge High School, is featured on the front cover of the November/December 2023 issue of Team Insight magazine (www.teaminsightmag.com).
This bi-monthly sports business publication provides news and analysis of the team sports market in the U.S. The picture of Griffin, a junior at Keiser University in West Palm Beach, features her wearing her Keiser University Seahawks flag football uniform. The cover shot of Griffin goes with the lead story in Team Insight, which is a six-page, in-depth story on the state of participation and interest in both tackle football and flag football in the U.S.
Griffin — who played four years of varsity flag football for Seminole Ridge under head coach Scott O’Hara and is currently a flag football student-athlete at Keiser under head coach Justin Hilliker — is a collegiate junior and is currently getting ready for the 2024 NAIA flag football season, which kicks off in February.
At Keiser, she’s a wide receiver. In her two years of playing flag football at Keiser, Griffin has caught 70 passes for 1,058 yards, for an average of 14.9 yards per catch. Of those 70 pass receptions, 14 of them have been for a touchdown.
When asked if she and her teammates at Keiser are ready for the upcoming season, she said that anything short of winning the season-ending NAIA Postseason Tournament in Atlanta is unacceptable.
“I know our team has the skill and talent to do so,” Griffin said. “My team and I are continuing to work each day together to perfect our craft, grow and get better. I think the amount of effort you put in is what you will get out of what we are trying to accomplish. And, the action, dedication and determination this year are like no other. So, I know, without a doubt, if we stay committed to our dream and goal, we will achieve it.”
With the recent news that men’s and women’s flag football has been included in the 2026 Summer Olympics in Los Angeles, Griffin would welcome the chance compete for a roster spot on Team USA and wear the red, white and blue in pursuit of an Olympic medal.
“It is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity that I would not want to pass up,” Griffin said.
