Video: One-Handed Safety Makes Interception

(CBS) –  Shaquem Griffin of Lakewood High School in Florida is almost like any other defensive back.

His size and speed make him the perfect fit for most defensive schemes. He’s even committed to play college ball at the University of Central Florida after he graduates in May.

The only problem is Griffin was born with Amniotic Band Syndrome, which means his amniotic sac was wrapped around his wrist, cutting off all circulation and stunting the development of his left hand. As a result, Griffin plays the safety position with one hand.

That wasn’t stopping Griffin in last night’s International Bowl.

Check out this video as Griffin makes a one-handed interception.
