Robert Griffin III needs to show his athleticism early on this season (US Presswire)
WASHINGTON (WUSA) -- During Wednesday's Robert Griffin III press conference, the Redskins quarterback revealed that playing in the NFL wasn't always his dream as a kid.
"I've never dreamed to play in the NFL, really. I was a basketball player growing up, and track of course. I thought I would be running in the Olympics or something like that," said the rookie.
"God just so happened to lead us to two state championship games in my junior and senior year in high school and that's how I ended up playing football."
What if Griffin's high school team became amazing at basketball? I can picture him as a speedy point guard in the NBA.
