Good on him... Former Tide Fooball Star Donates School Supplies "Even though he is living the dream of many little boys, Griffin has not forgotten where he came from or those who supported and encouraged him along the way. So, for two years, he has given back to his hometown community by providing school supplies for the students at Pike County Elementary School." "Cornelius said he wants to buy the supplies for the students so their parents will not have to worry about the added expenses of getting back to school," said Mark Griffin, Cornelius’ brother. "He just wants all the kids to be able to start the year off right." "Griffin requested a school supply list for each grade at PCES and purchased what was needed for each student – all 450 of them."
