Stay Aware Of Your Surroundings

The golf course doesn’t seem like an overly dangerous place, but it can be. A club, for example, can be dangerous in the wrong hands. A stray ball not only hurts to get hit with, it can cause a serious injury. It’s one thing that these Phoenix car accident lawyers deal with often.

After fumbling in his only carry of his first game, Griffin more than made up for it in his second game by rushing for 237 yards against North Carolina. By the end of the season, Griffin had rushed for 867 yards.
