Shaquem Griffin will be playing with his twin brother, Shaquill, in the NFL with the Seattle Seahawks

As if this story isn’t unique enough and awesome enough,  Shaquem Griffin had his left hand amputated at the age 4 because of an amniotic band syndrome, a congenital condition.

Their reactions were priceless and powerful:

“I couldn’t breathe. I didn’t know what to say. I was trying to get the words out, but I couldn’t talk.” Shaquem -former outside linebacker at UCF

His twin brother’s words resonated just as much:

“I don’t think I cried on my draft day I couldn’t hold it. I just couldn’t hold it. I’m excited, and I’m glad we made that choice and we’re bringing my brother back home.” Shaquill- former cornerback  at UCF
