Frederick Hartley Graham (December 11, 1900 – August 29, 1952)[1] was a professional football player in the National Football League who played in 1926 with the Providence Steam Roller and the Frankford Yellow Jackets.

Prior to joining the NFL, Graham attended and played college football at West Virginia University. At WVU, Graham excelled in football and basketball from 1921 to 1925 and earned first-team All-American honors in basketball in 1924. He also earned four letters in football as an end and served as the team's captain in 1924.

He was a member of West Virginia's only undefeated football team, which posted a 10-0-1 record in 1922. Graham also helped WVU collect its first bowl victory, a 21-13 decision over Gonzaga in the 1922 East-West Shrine Game. During his Mountaineer career, WVU posted a 30-6-3 record. On May 25, 2009, Graham was inducted into the WVU Athletics Hall of Fame.
