Hamilton may be associated with a well-known Broadway show, but in Roswell, Georgia, the name is associated with football. Elijah Hamilton has always felt his father’s presence.

Growing up, Hamilton had a reputation as the prodigal son of a linebacker who had played in the NFL. Additionally, he always felt more pressure than his friends because he was the son of one of his high school coaches.

The gene was passed down from the elder Hamilton, Ruffin Hamilton, a core special teams player who made his mark in the NFL with the Atlanta Falcons and Green Bay Packers. Last season, Elijah Hamilton, who led the team with 10 special teams tackles, found his place with the Commodores.

Coming from a football background was helpful for the younger Hamilton when it came to his early challenges to play on the field during his undergraduate career.

Hamilton must also serve as an example for his brother Jackson, who plans to play college football after completing his senior year at Roswell, Georgia’s Blessed Trinity Catholic High School.

Elijah Hamilton may have begun his football career as “Ruffin Hamilton’s kid,” but with dedication and effort, he has built a legacy in football that will last for many years.
