Not only did the photo of the running back show him holding his trophy, it also showed what appeared to be a tattoo on his right arm. This sparked even more doubt among users. 

One TikTok user posting under the name @hoodnews24 shared what appears to be a video from the championships, in which Jeremiah can be seen holding his trophy - before going on to confirm his age to the stunned social media creator. 

'Hey man, I don't know, how old are you?' the TikTok user asks Jeremiah, who simply responds: '12.' 

'The boy is 12!' @hoodnews24 tells his followers in surprise, before adding that he would be outraged if the young player doesn't go straight to the NFL. 

'Yes sir, boy you're ready,' he added. 'You deserve it, you deserve it.'
