Earnest Graham son, Myles Graham, previously went by the Earnest Graham Jr. Myles announced his commitment to the Gators in 2022 and was the first signee.
The linebacker has continued his father’s legacy by choosing the Gators over other top colleges. His older sister, Aiyana, is also a student at UF.
The former Tampa Bay Buccaneers player, Earnest Graham, played for the Gators from 1998 to 2002. During the end of his career with the Gators, the running back ranked as one of the best in the Gators history.
But the Gators legend has expressed dissatisfaction over Florida’s lack of communication. Like many, Earnest might have been taken aback by the linebackers coach Jay Bateman’s surprise move to Texas A&M.
The move shocked many as only a day before his move to Texas A&M, Bateman shared a photo of him and Myles, captioning the post, “My man!! Let’s get to work.” The post has now been deleted.
Earnest Graham Son: Meet Myles Graham
Earnest Graham’s son, Myles Graham, is a four-star recruit out of FW Buchholz. The talented athlete recently announced his commitment to the Gators, continuing the family legacy.
After signing his National Letter of Intent, Myles said he had been a Florida Gator his entire life. The youngster said he grew up wearing the UF’s gear. Graham said he has been repping the orange and blue since coming out of the womb.
Myles is the youngest child of Earnest and his wife, Alicia Graham, and was raised alongside his older sister, Aiyana Graham.
Standing at 6’1, Graham is a linebacker, previously playing at Woodward Academy before joining Buchholz. In his final year at Woodward, in 2021, Myles compiled 193 tackles, five sacks, and nine tackles for loss.
He also had 11 pass breakups and three forced fumbles. After relocating to Gainsville for his senior campaign, Myles produced 82 tackles, including nine for loss. He also had three sacks, one interception, five pass breakups, and one forced fumble.
Myles rushed for 600 yards and 17 touchdowns with his high school team. Ranked as the No.81 overall player and No.7 linebacker in the 2024 class by 247 Sports, Myels initially pledged to Florida on August 14, 2022.
He chose the Gators over Alabama, Ohio State, Texas A&M, and Auburn. He has become the first and since then, the longest commit of Florida’s 2024 class.
In his scouting report, Myles was said to have a solid all-around skill set. The reports stated he diagnoses and keys quickly and takes on blocks, stacks, and sheds when playing the run.
Many Gators fans are happy to see Myles join their side. Some even wrote that seeing Earnest Graham’s son sign for the team has made them realize their age.
Earnest Graham Wife: Meet Alicia Graham
The former NFL player, Earnest Graham, is married to Alicia Graham. The couple tied the knot in 2004, the same year he was promoted by the Buccaneers from the practice squad to the active roster.
Prior to their wedding, the couple had already welcomed their daughter, Aiyana Graham. In 2008, in his conversation with ESPN, Graham detailed his struggles before signing his main contract.
There was a time when Alicia would be the one covering their child’s diapers, groceries, and his $10 drive-through dinners. At the time, Earnest could barely afford his daughter’s daycare.
Alicia and Graham would have to depend on Graham’s mother and his friends to lend him money. But somehow, the couple weathered all their problems and built a happy family.
Alicia works at Pro Player Insurance Group, established by her husband. In 2014, it was reported that Alicia operates as the managing partner and agent for the Fort Myers branch.
Alicia is available on Facebook and has shared a few family posts. A graduate of Florida A&M University, Alicia shared a picture of her son’s official visit to UF.
The couple’s eldest child, Aiyana Graham, was born in 2003 and is pursuing a nutritional sciences degree at the University of Florida.
Alongside pursuing her studies, Aiyana works as an energy program administrative assistant at the Community Weatherization Coalition.
