Elijah Holyfield can make his dreams come true if he accepts Georgia's scholarship. The Bulldogs have been Elijah's favorite team since he was a young boy.

"It was great to get the offer," Holyfield told the AJC. "Georgia has been my favorite team since I was young. It's like a dream getting an offer from Georgia.

"It was always a goal. I had goals set in my mind when I started playing football, and one of them was playing football at Georgia one day. It's cool growing up and actually getting an offer from them."

The 4-star, 2016 running back has already racked up 25 scholarship offers. But Georgia is in the lead for Holyfield. The Holyfields are huge Dawgs fans. Elijah's favorite Bulldogs are Knowshon Moreno and Todd Gurley.

"My parents like Georgia," he said. "They were always on TV so much, so I grew up liking Georgia."

If he commits to the Dawgs, it's likely that Nick Chubb and Sony Michel would be leading the Dawgs in the backfield in 2016, barring any transfers.

Check out his highlight reel in the video above. He reminds of his favorite player, Todd Gurley.
