GMC Prep School Alumnus Myles Humphus started at GMC as a 7th grader and graduated high school in 1995. Humphus was raised in Milledgeville, GA and was born into a GMC family. He is the son of GMC History teacher and Senior Army Instructor, Major Thomas Humphus. His mother, Kija Humphus, taught dance and was a seamstress in her own boutique, Kija’s, located in downtown Milledgeville. His brother, David Humphus, is a GMC alumnus as well.
While at Georgia Military College Prep School, Humphus earned ten athletic letters and set records in football and track. He notes that some of the most prominent traits he learned and developed at GMC are personal pride and tenacity. It was on the sports fields at GMC where Humphus learned the value of hard work and that winning was just one part of life. Thanks to his time at GMC Prep, he learned firsthand that “hard work” means more than just accomplishing the task. It means to truly understand what comprises the task and to dedicate oneself to accomplishing it as effectively and ethically as possible.
Since graduating from GMC Prep in 1995 and going off into the world, Humphus’ journey has taken him from playing professional football, to prizefighting, and now to working as an actor and stuntman living in New York City.
After high school, Humphus attended the U.S. Military Academy Preparatory School, then Liberty University and finally the University of Memphis, playing football at each school.
He continued his schooling by enrolling in The William Esper Studio in New York City, where he studied acting.
He also worked in the corporate world and was a prize fighter before finding a successful career in film, television, commercials, and even book covers. With over 70 credits to his name, Humphus shares that he still has much more ahead. For the past 9 years, Humphus has worked alongside friend and coworker Tanoai Reed, stunt doubling Dwayne Johnson on movies such as Furious 7, Jumanji, Jungle Cruise and most recently, Black Adam. His career as an actor includes appearances on Banshee, New Amsterdam, Law and Order, and most recently the iPhone 13 commercial and Jigsaw.
Humphus also works with the Lionheart Foundation in corporate engagement, channeling donations to serve the vital needs of the foundation. The Lionheart Foundation works alongside local law enforcement to investigate and prosecute child sex traffickers within major cities in the United States.
Humphus is a proud alumnus and supporter of GMC Prep School. He has committed his valuable time and resources over the years to benefit both the football and fine arts programs at GMC Prep, helping GMC Prep students to express themselves physically and artistically. We are so grateful for his commitment to his alma mater, and are very proud to call him a member of the GMC family.
Myles currently resides in New York City with his wife, Marina Rakic.
