Earnest Graham asked Joe for a favor

If Joe sees something amazing on a football field connected to the Bucs, then Joe is going to share.

One of most beloved and hardest working Buccaneers, Earnest “Insurance” Graham, asked Joe for a favor the other day. Graham is head coach at North Fort Myers high school, and he pours his heart and knowledge into his team.

The former Gators great and Fort Myers native also is grooming a superstar running back, Zaquandre White, a 6-1 sophomore already committed to Florida State University.

White ripped off the following run in spring football on Friday night. It’s a stunner. Joe hopes the Bucs’ offensive line can show this kind of heart, grit and raw desire this season.

Enjoy the video below! Joe loves the poise shown at the end.

    This is a case of playing against shitty competition. It’s athletic, but it doesn’t impress me because the smart play would’ve been to take your 3 yard loss. You’re in field goal range. All the running backwards could’ve pushed them out of it.

    That’s impressive! It must be the coaching. 🙂

    I think they wrote an SNL skit about you.

    Jimmy Fallon: [ordering breakfast at Disney World] I love Mickey’s Steak and eggs!
    Debbie Downer: Ever since they found mad cow disease in the US, I’m not taking any chances.
    Jimmy Fallon: What?
    Debbie Downer: They say it can live in your body for up to three years before it attacks and destroys your brain.

    Lindsay Lohan: Darn it, Debbie! You are not going to spoil my visit to Disney World! Now, I didn’t say anything at “It’s a Small World” when you went on about low birth weight in babies or during the fireworks when you started talking about Feline AIDS…
    Debbie Downer: It’s still the number one cause of death among domestic cats
    [frustrated, Lindsay leaves]
    Debbie Downer: By the way, don’t forget the sunscreen. I had a mole looked at the other day and the doctor said that based on the size and shape of the edges, I am flirting with that melanoma thing.
    [everyone else at the table gets up to leave]
    Debbie Downer: OK, I guess I’ll meet you all later at my favorite ride; The Hall of Presidents. You know they never did catch that anthrax guy.

    @Bucfreak and @Wausa….When have you ever made a run similar to this? Where is your game tape? You are probably what joe was referring to as a “PlayStation warrior”.

  8. Bobby Says:

    How the heck can you not be impressed with that run??!?

  9. ATrain Says:

    Earnest Graham is a Class Act. The Bucs have had some great football players on this team.

    BUT Earnest is an all around great man and player.

    Thank you Earnest for the great football to watch and the fan appreciation you had.

    My Daughters favorite player to this day.. She thanks you for signing her jersey and taken a picture.

    His sister is an all around great woman too, if you know what I mean. #freaka

    Hating on a minor? What a trout sniffer!! That run was sick!!!

  12. Buccfan37 Says:

    Maybe the Gators can talk some sense into him and get him to do a switcharoo.

  13. tval Says:

    Why in the world would he want to be a gator? 🙂 awesome run

    Can’t believe there’s even a hint of negativity here on this. Stunning run, and no surprise that Earnest Graham is invested in the community.
