25 Days to Gator Football – #25 Elijah Williams (’94-’97)

Elijah Elgebra Williams was born in Milton, Florida, and played running back and defensive end for Steve Spurrier‘s Florida Gators from 1994 to 1997. When asked why he chose Florida, he stated that he wanted a school that was close to home, had good academics, and had his favorite number, #25 in honor of Raghib “Rocket” Ismail. It was a good thing that Notre Dame was too far away, because he did get an offer from Notre Dame amongst his 63 offers.  As a Gator running back, Elijah led the team in rushing yards in ’95 and ’96 and was a key member of the 1996 Bowl Alliance National Championship team. He finished with over 3,000 all-purpose yards.
