Griffith Wilson, a sophomore in Forest Management at NC State University, is used to working hard. That includes the work he has put into becoming the winner of the US STIHL® TIMBERSPORTS® Southern Collegiate Qualifer. And now it counts toward the challenge he will face this weekend as he battles other great student athletes for the Collegiate Championship being held at the Norfolk Scope Arena, Norfolk, Virginia, June 20-22.
Griff has a natural talent for timbersports, AND he is a natural in front of the cameras. Yahoo on the Road, sponsored by RAM Country, tested both of those qualities recently when they came out to Camp Slocum on NC State’s G.W. Hill Demonstration Forest in Durham County, NC, to film Griff during one of his training sessions. They not only captured evidence of his talent and composure, but they also picked up on the Wolfpack passion for tradition and NC State’s history in Forestry.
