EDWARDSVILLE – When it comes to golf, Edwardsville senior Parker Griffiths is a late bloomer, but he has already improved his game enough to earn a college scholarship.
Griffiths, who didn’t start playing golf until his sophomore year at EHS, recently signed a letter of intent to play on the junior college level at Lewis and Clark Community College in Godfrey.
“(EHS) coach (Adam) Tyler told me one day that Lewis and Clark was interested in me and I thought it would be a good spot for me to go,” Griffiths said. “I’m very excited about the opportunity to play golf in college.
“Lewis and Clark is close to home, so I can stay at home and play there. It’s a got a nice campus and I’ve heard from other people that I can get a good education there.”
Lewis and Clark competes in Division II of the NJCAA and Gerald Mozur is the head golf coach. The Trailblazers’ roster for the 2018-19 season included freshman Lucas Verdun, a former EHS golfer.
“They have a lot of good sports programs and I thought it would be a good fit for me,” Griffiths said. “(Mozur) seems like a really good guy and it seems like he knows golf a lot. He can tell me a lot to make my game better.”
