  • Ran track and played basketball in high school
  • Nickname is “South Sumter”

What They Are Saying About Earl Everett

“I appreciate your defense. I clearly remember linebacker Earl Everett. (Applause.) I've seen that face before. (Laughter.) So has the whole country. You might remember, Everett lost his headgear. He didn't lose his head -- (laughter) -- but he lost his headgear and he went on to make a great tackle in a key moment. That's called tough defense, hard-nosed defense. (Applause.)” (3/19/07)
President George W. Bush, 43rd president of the United States

"He's just a solid guy. He goes to work every day. He's one of the best athletes on the team all-around. He's like a no-nonsense kind of guy. When he's working, he's working. You don't want to bother with him when he's out there on the field. When he's on the field, he's a totally different person." (12/28/06)
Jemalle Cornelius, UF wide receiver

"I feel real good. I'm just going to enjoy this tonight. It means the world to all of us. All year long, that was our main goal, that and winning the SEC championship. Us seniors, we worked so hard all year long and we deserve it. It means the world to all of us going out like this. There's nothing better." (12/3/06)
Earl Everett

“Reaching the national championship has been one of our goals. We wanted to go out on a great note. We wanted to do something that hadn’t been done around here in a long time. The first thing was to win a SEC Championship, and we took care of that Saturday night. The next thing was to get to the national championship and everything fell into place for us. It doesn’t get any better than that.” (12/3/06)
Earl Everett

"He's just a solid guy. He goes to work every day. He's one of the best athletes on the team all around. He's like a no-nonsense kind of guy. When he's working, he's working. You don't want to bother with him when he's out there on the field. When he's on the field, he's a totally different person." (12/1/06)
Jemalle Cornelius, UF Wide Receiver

"They're (Earl Everett and Howard Lingard) athletic and can both run like the wind, which is a great, great thing. It's what you look for in recruiting, and they're as advertised. Sometimes guys show up and they're not what you thought they were, but these guys are everything we thought they were in terms of their athletic skills. I love getting those guys that ran hurdles and have that explosion, the explosive-type events in track." (August 19, 2003)
Bill Miller, Former Linebackers coach

"He's the best athlete I've ever coached.  He played wherever we needed him to play.  He's just a great kid and a great team player.  That's what makes him so special.  It's all about team with him.  He'll do whatever it takes to help your team win games."

"We love him.  As good an athlete as you see, he's a better person.  He's so humble.  He's a great person.  Anything that happens to him, he deserves.  He's a very nice young man.  He does his work in school.  Our teachers love him.  Athletically, the sky is the limit.  If he can stay healthy, he'll make an impact." (Feb. 6, 2003)

"You can see when he breaks a sweat that he enjoys being in shape.  You can tell.  He does more.  He does extra.  It's something that's become part of his personality.  He does it every day.  I wish we had more kids that work like he does.  The ones that do are successful." (March 29, 2003)

"It's just the way he's been raised.  His grandmother's taught him, when you make a commitment to something, you do it right.  If your responsibility is to be there five days a week, then you're there five days a week.  Earl has grown into knowing how important that is.  He enjoys the work." (March 29, 2003)

"As good an athlete as he is, he's a better person.  He's a great person.  He's respectful, and he's responsible.  He does all the things that high school coaches and teachers want to see him do.  He knows how to handle himself.  He's been wonderful." (March 29, 2003)
Inman Sherman, HS coach

"In this game, you've got to be able to run, and that's one thing he can do.  He's a guy that can run like a DB.  Earl has gotten better and better as the season has gone along."  (November 28, 2003)
Ron Zook, Former UF Head Coach

“In what is supposed to be a more attacking, more aggressive Florida defense, there is a good chance it will be Everett’s play that draws the spotlight among the UF linebackers.”

“Everett had an excellent camp (the best among the linebackers, according to the coaches) and seems to be thriving in the more aggressive defensive scheme. He is physical enough to defend the run and has the speed to play from sideline to sideline and drop into pass coverage.” (8/21/2005)
Robbie Andreu, The Gainesville Sun

“He’s a great athlete. He is a really good football player. When you look at our defense, he’s one of our best players as far as pure athletic ability. We can do a lot of things with him. He runs so well that we can blitz him and when we need him in coverage, he can cover. He has a chance to have a really big year. He brings enough power (to stop the run), and he can go cover people on the pass.”

“It was so funny. We were watching a tape of a (defensive back) back pedaling the other day and Earl backpedals just as good as the defensive backs. He’s such a good athlete. In this defense, you’re always trying to find ways to get your better players in a position to make plays. That’s what we’re trying to do with him.” (8/21/2005)
Charlie Strong, UF Co-Defensive Coordinator

“The Gators have two of the league’s premier linebackers in sophomore Brandon Siler and Earl Everett and a solid, experienced player in Todd McCullough.” (8/21/2005)
Robbie Andreu, The Gainesville Sun

"I was a little surprised (at the play call). But I'm willing to do anything to help my team get a victory." (10/1/05)
Earl Everett, UF Linebacker

"I was actually on the bench sitting down when they called it and I heard everybody say we were going to run it. I was happy at the moment. We've been practicing on it since the first game, every week in practice. When the time came to run it, we executed it well. I give all the credit to the punt team. They blocked well. The main thing on my mind was to get a first down." (10/2/05)
Earl Everett, UF Linebacker

"Maybe Florida linebacker Earl Everett has a future as a running back. Everett looked pretty good carrying the ball on a 32-yard gain on a fake punt late in the first quarter." (10/2/05)
