Onondaga 11-Year-Old Could Be Next Sports Illustrated Sports Kid of the Year
11 year-old Myles Griffin is a student at Onondaga Hill Middle School and he could be the December cover of Sports Illustrated. The wrestler is one of six in the running for this year's Sports Kid of the Year.
Myles may only be 11 but he already has more wrestling trophies and belts than you can count. He's a three-time New York state champion, a six-time national champ, and has an overall record of 465–85. Myles also led his Little League team in batting last season and has been the top goal scorer on his soccer team. He also hopes to one day compete for the U.S. Military Academy or Cornell University.
Myles isn't just good at sports. In school he received the award for character, good citizenship, and scholastic achievement. Myles also plays the French horn and volunteers at a local nursing home and his church.
Where does he find the time?
You can help Griffin take the Sports Kid of the Year title by voting, which open until noon on Monday October 13th.
Myles will need all the help he can get since he's up against little league phenom Mo'ne Dave, who became the first female to pitch a shutout.
I voted for Myles and am crossing my fingers he'll pull out the win. But if he isn't named this year's Sports Kid of the Year, he's still a winner.
