Wearer of a "Y" sweatshirt
I believe the answer is:
'wearer of a y sweatshirt' is the definition.
(I've seen this in another clue)
This is all the clue.
(Other definitions for eli that I've seen before include "Man" , "High priest in the Book of Samuel" , "Biblical high priest" , "Samuel's teacher (OT)" , "Priest, teacher of Samuel" .)
