Robert is the son of army sergeants who were stationed in Japan at the time. The family later moved back to the US, and Robert grew up in Washington, New Orleans and finally Texas. He went to Copperas Cove High School, where he first showed his talent in both track and field and especially football programs, setting Texas state records in the 110-meter hurdles and 300-meter hurdles, and so being named the Gatorade Texas Boys Track & Field Athlete of the Year. Soon after, he decided to play for the University of Houston’s Art Briles, but when the coach moved, he chose to enroll at Baylor. During the 2008 spring semester, he starred for the Baylor track and field squad – after winning the Big 12 Conference championship in the 400-meter hurdles, he was rewarded with All-American honors. In the summer that same year, he placed 11th at the US Olympic Team Trials but gave up soon after in favor of concentrating on football. As a freshman, Robert brought hope to the struggling football team with his outstanding results, but missed most of the 2009 season due to a torn ligament. However, he returned in the next season, delivering 4,136 passing and rushing yards and 30 touchdowns. The 2011 season brought great progress to Griffin, who led Baylor to a record-tying 10 wins and 13th place in the final AP Poll. His final scores brought him the Heisman Memorial Trophy as college football’s top player, at the same time placing him in the national spotlight.
In December 2012, Robert graduated with a degree in political science, and was then selected as the no.2 pick in the 2012 NFL Draft by the Washington Redskins. Once again, upon his arrival at the Redskins football team, Griffin improved the team’s overall score by winning against the New Orleans Saints and becoming the first rookie quarterback to win the NFL Offensive Player of the Week honors in his debut game. Only a few weeks later, he was named the NFL Offensive Rookie of the Month for September. Robert was made the team captain, and in a great team performance against the Philadephia Eagles, another NFL Offensive Player of the Week award. Thanks to his team’s victory against the Dallas Cowboys, he also won another NFL Offensive Rookie of the Month award, however, due to a sudden knee injury and surgery, Griffin missed the entire 2013 exhibition schedule. Since his knee significantly decreased his running abilities and accuracy of throws, it was decided that he should be withdrawn in order to avoid the possibility of another injury.
After recovering from his knee and later ankle injuries, Robert was released by the Redskins, and signed a two year, $15 million contract with the Cleveland Browns in March 2016, but was released after an inconsistent season effected by injuries, and as of mid-2017 is without a team.
When it comes to his personal life, Griffin married to Rebecca Liddicoat in 2013, and the two have a daughter, however, in late 2016 they separated, and Robert is now engaged to Grete Šadeiko, an Estonian heptathlete, who delivered their daughter in July 2017. Robert is a Protestant Christian and is known for making a sign of the cross after big plays.
