Seward Baseball Player Receives Ultimate Academic Honor
06/24/2013

While it would be tough for Johnny Griffith to top his accolades of a
standout sophomore season on the diamond this year for the Seward County
Saints, he may have just done that.   A month after he was the first
junior college player to sign with Army and the only junior college
player to be named to the Capital One Academic All-District Team, the
third baseman notched another prestigious honor as he was the only
junior college player in the country to be named a Capital One Academic
All-American.  Griffith was a third team choice and one of just four
sophomores to be named to any of the Capital One College Division
Academic All-American teams. 
 
Griffith was a second team Jayhawk West All-Conference for the Saints as
a sophomore, hitting .377 with 17 extra base hits while driving in 28
runs at the plate and notching a team high 5 saves on the mound as
Seward's closer.  At his best in the clutch, Griffith was third on the
team with a .386 average with runners in scoring position. 
 
In the classroom Griffith finished his academic career with a 3.88 GPA
and achieved a perfect 4.00 GPA during his final semester at Seward
County.  Along with earning Capital One Academic All-District and
Capital One Academic All-American, Griffith was also Seward County's
Schuffleberger award winner, finishing with the top GPA of any male
student-athlete in the athletic department.  An English major, Griffith
will continue his academic career at the United States Military Academy
starting in July.
