Pingry's "Captain America" a leader in three sports. Nicknamed “Captain America,” Liam Griff represents perhaps the epitome of the three-sport athlete. Liam earned eight varsity letters and held three captainships in soccer, lacrosse, and basketball, and was elected senior class president. Liam was named soccer team captain his senior year, starting every game for a defense that allowed fewer than seven goals all season. That same year he earned All-Conference honorable mention, in addition to the Timothy Cornwall Boys’ Soccer Award. The undefeated team went on to win the conference championship. Liam played shooting guard in basketball and was a leading scorer, racking up more than 1,000 points. He picked up All-Conference honors in 2002-2003 and 2003-2004, and won the Frank Romano Boys’ Basketball Award in 2003-2004. Liam was able to perform even in high-pressure scenarios: his 1,000th and 1,001st points were scored at the foul line in the final minute of his final game. Liam played attack in lacrosse, and remains one of the greatest goal-scorers in Pingry history; his records, 70 season goals and 131 career goals, still stand. Liam picked up All-Conference, All-County, and All-State honors in 2003, and the team won the county championship that year. The following year, Liam earned All-Conference, All-County, All-State, and All-American honors, and the team won a repeat victory in the county championship. Liam was named Star Ledger Player of the Week and Courier News Player of the Year during the same season. Liam went on to play four years of varsity lacrosse at Harvard, and three years of junior varsity basketball. Liam competed for the New York Athletic Club at the annual NACAD basketball tournament 2015-2019.
