Bio

Played all four years at Virginia Commonwealth University with fellow professional Rafael Campos. The pair lived together in a small two-bedroom loft apartment a quarter-mile from campus.

Was named after a spiritual master (Lord Lanto) and is very thankful for his balanced upbringing.

Favorite golf memory is playing 45 holes a day at his local nine-hole course every weekend.

Is involved with the Boys & Girls Club of Roanoke Valley because he "enjoys helping local kids who need some guidance."

Not many people know he has never eaten red meat and that his diet consists of fish and poultry.

Dream foursome includes Ken Griffey Jr., Jimmy Fallon and Jerry Rice. Would like to be on "The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon" because "he is hysterical and talented."

The Lanto Griffin Charitable Gift Trust, established in 2020, assists families battling devastating or terminal illnesses that cannot afford to support their needs. In addition, the Trust looks to provide support for disadvantaged youth so they max excel in sports with a goal of receiving college scholarships.

During the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020, along with his girlfriend, Maya, fostered a dog named Troy and adopted him.
