You”d think Baylor king Robert Griffin III would go wild after winning the Heisman Trophy this weekend in NYC — but has learned, the star QB went straight to Ground Zero instead … to pay his respects.
Griffin family sources tell , RG3 and several close family members made a beeline from the Best Buy Theater to the 9/11 memorial on Saturday. According to sources, the Griffins are a military family — and Robert felt it was important to visit Ground Zero for some somber reflection.
We”re told the Griffins spent a couple of hours at the memorial … before heading downtown for a quick shopping excursion.
After the emotional tribute and the intimate family bonding time … RG3 finally took off in his limo to party with fellow Heisman candidates Trent Richardson, Andrew Luck, Montee Ball, and Tyrann Mathieu.
