Evander Holyfied’s Son, 4-Star RB Elijah, Has 7-Touchdown Game

September 4th, 2014| by

Elijah Holyfield might have just made news for being Rivals’ No. 130 recruit in the country and scoring seven touchdowns in a game.

But Elijah is also the son of legendary boxer Evander Holyfield, giving his story an extra dimension and proving that athletic family bloodlines run deep.

A 4-star class of 2016 running back from Woodward Academy in College Park, GA, Holyfield had all seven touchdowns for his team in a 45-13 victory over Decatur High School on Friday.

With at least 15 offers from Power 5 schools according to Rivals, in time we might be referring to Evander Holyfield as “Elijah’s dad.”
