A no-nonsense player who earned respect from his peers and coaches for his ‘blue collar’ approach to the game of football is 2013 Hall of Fame inductee Myles Easter.
As a youngster, Myles developed an early passion for the game through his father, Myles. Young Myles benefitted from his father’s desire to expose his sons to the challenges and rewards experienced through commitment and hard work. Myles accepted these challenges and molded himself physically and mentally to an elite level.
During his senior season in the fall of 2006, Myles was the relentless leader of the Indians defense. Playing in the rugged CIML Central, Myles was selected as a unanimous first team safety. Shortly after the season ended, Myles was also named as a 4A third team All-State safety.
Not ready for his football career to end, Myles enrolled at Grand View University. While at Grand View, Myles became a three year starter at safety and a team captain his senior year. During his final year, he led the Vikings in interceptions and was second in that category in the conference.
Myles would like to thank his parents, Brenda and Myles, his brothers Zac and Levi, and his grandparents for their support and encouragement. He also credits high school coaches Eric Kluver, Josh Lullmann and Casey Aldridge for their positive influence.
Since his graduation from Grand View last year, Myles is currently a financial advisor and manager trainee with Bankers Life and Casualty Company. He currently resides in Winterset.
