LAGRANGE PARK – Nazareth’s Marcus Griffin Jr. made a point to let his teammates hear his message throughout Monday’s opening practice.

Despite the weather — dark, gloomy and a constant drizzle of rain — leading to less-than-ideal conditions for the opening of fall practice, Griffin was a beacon of activity throughout the two-plus hour session.

Wearing a bright orange shirt and white shorts, Griffin was all over the field making plays and letting everybody on the field — and in the stands — hear his voice.
