He turned his local achievements into a college scholarship to University of South Florida where he played 4 years for a team that was ranked as high #33rd nationally. During his years at University of South Florida, Griff taught tennis during the summer and following his graduation (Bachelor of Science, Economics) he settled in to teach at MR&HC in February of 1977 and he earned his USPTA Teaching Certification (Currently P-1).
