The Griffin Twins have been inseparable since birth. Growing up together, taking the college football scene by storm at the University of Central Florida and now both finding their NFL home with the Seattle Seahawks.
The two also started a YouTube channel highlighting what a day in the life of quarantine looks like for them. The series is titled ‘Shaqin It Up with the Griffin Twins’ and episode three, “The 727” just dropped on June 28.
The 727 area code is from St. Petersburg, Florida, where the Griffin twins grew up.
Here’s a breakdown of episode three:
PART ONE: It’s a work day
Get a behind the scenes look at how the Griffin twins are staying in shape for the upcoming NFL season during this pandemic in a backyard workout.
In the video, the two are working on balance and stability in the sand, which if you’ve ever done a sand workout is not easy feat. Also, their Russell Wilson and DK Metcalf impersonation is pretty spot on.
PART TWO: Boats n’ skies
Just as it is important to train and workout, it’s also important to have off days, rest and recover.
How the Griffin twins do just that on a hot day in Florida is hit the water.

PART THREE: Giving back
Me and my brother have been through so much in our life and it’s just a privilege to be in the position that we are in today, to be able to give back to the less fortunate. I honestly feel that is the main reason why we play this game - to be able to give back to ones that may need it the most.
The twins partnered with Nike to give t-shirts, shorts and other clothes along with shoes to the homeless in their Florida community. Turns out a ton of families showed up, so the twins decided to clothe the parents and order pizza, water and other food for the kids.

The Seattle Seahawks along with the rest of the NFL will report for training camp starting on July 28. Staring corner Shaquill is coming off a 45 tackle season in 2019 while linebacker brother Shaquem saw most of his action on special teams and finished with three tackles last season.
