RG3 Robert Griffin III first came to prominence playing college football, most notably in winning the Heisman Trophy in 2011.

But, in between, his move to the pros included fainting spells, food poisoning and a host of other, more mysterious turns that would come together to define a career that had a profound impact on the football world.

College Years & Heisman Winner

Robert Griffin III Composite one of those Beasts on the Square Make no mistake, as soon as, Robert Griffin III became popular at Baylor College, he undoubtedly excelled in terms of showing off his athletic skills to the football field as well as his leadership abilities.

After such an impressive showing and stats to boot; he won the Heisman in 2011 in what was likely one of the best seasons a college football player has ever had.

NFL Entry and Early Success

A second overall pick of the Washington Redskins in the 2012 NFL Draft, Griffin entered the NFL with a lot of hype.

He showed flashes of greatness in his maiden season and his debut had seen him lauded, with some column inches devoted to talk of how he might win the NFL MVP.

Obstacles and Setbacks that Altered His Career

While he enjoyed a fast start, Griffin found himself adjusting to the rigors of the NFL. This changed his career trajectory as the Redskins handled his development and seam to seam tear through NFL defenses under a crushing weight of having to carry the team.

NFL Transition and Turbulent Career

The path from a more college oriented game to a game the NFL would not tolerate became too much for Griffin, and that journey was only elongated by injury problems.

Another was just how the Redskins had treated RG3's injuries, which had some wondering about his viability going forward.

Legacy and Impact

While Griffin never lived up to the massive expectation he set with his rookie season, his NFL career would be a footnote to a singular event that defined his legacy.

His legacy of improbable success combined with undeniable skill, and the role he played on so many levels of football will forever resonate through the football world.

On the whole

The path from college stardom to the NFL has all the complexities and trials any athlete faces in the search for greatness, a journey none knows better than Robert Griffin III.

Despite the hurdles he had to overcome, his contribution to the game and the motivation that footballers continue to derive from his resilience are the perhaps the lasting tribute to the legendary footballer.

From his days as a Heisman trophy-winning college superstar to his trials and tribulations within the dogged business of professional football, RGIII's 400 epic narrative encapsulates itself in the turbulent life of a gifted athlete.
