Danny Griffin is the only player who has appeared and started in every Pittsburgh Riverhounds SC match this season.

That’s right, Griffin’s started 28 of the Riverhounds 28 league matches, playing 2,514 total minutes.

In his third year with the club, the former Providence Friars standout has become more than a fixture for the Hounds, he’s become one of the team’s leaders and a part of one of the best midfields in the league.

Head Coach Bob Lilley decided that Thursday would only be an option workout day for his players, ahead of the Hounds’ big match vs Louisville City FC on Saturday (7 p.m. – Highmark Stadium).  And, it was no surprise that Griffin was the last one of the field putting in the extra work on an optional workout day.

Here’s my interview with Griffin after Thursday’s training session, for Pittsburgh Sports Live.

John Krysinsky has covered soccer and other sports for many years for various publications and media outlets. He is also author of 'Miracle on the Mon' -- a book about the Pittsburgh Riverhounds SC, which chronicles the club, particularly the early years of Highmark Stadium with the narrative leading up to and centered around a remarkable match that helped provide a spark for the franchise. John has covered sports for Pittsburgh Tribune-Review, DK Pittsburgh Sports, Pittsburgh Sports Report, has served as color commentator on Pittsburgh Riverhounds SC broadcasts, and worked with OPTA Stats and broadcast teams for US Open Cup and International Champions Cup matches held in the US. Krysinsky also served as the Head Men’s Soccer Coach at his alma mater, Point Park University, where he led the Pioneers to the first-ever winning seasons and playoff berths (1996-98); head coach of North Catholic boys (2007-08), associate head coach of Shady Side Academy boys (2009-2014).
