Bio

Frank Gore is a veteran running back who has spent his entire professional career with the San Francisco 49ers. During his nine NFL seasons, Gore has made five Pro Bowls and rushed for over 1,000 yard mark seven times.

Early Years & College

Gore was born in Miami, FL on May 14, 1983 and set numerous records as a running back at Coral Gables High School. As a senior, he fell only three yards short of reaching the 3,000 yard mark and rushed for 39 touchdowns, making him a top five recruit nationally by ESPN and Rivals.com. With his mother battling kidney disease, Gore chose to stay close to home and signed a letter of intent to play at the University of Miami.

After joining the Hurricanes, he rushed for 12 touchdowns as a freshman while helping the team win the 2001 National championship over Ohio State. He suffered a torn ACL prior to spring practice in 2002 and ended up missing the entire season, allowing Willis McGahee to take over as the starting tailback. When he returned in 2003, he rushed for over 100 yards in each of his first five games back in the lineup and ended up rushing for 1,975 yards in 28 total games for Miami.

San Francisco 49ers

Gore’s previous knee injury hindered his production in college, but the San Francisco 49ers took a chance on him by selecting him in the third round with the 65th overall pick of the 2005 NFL Draft. He ended up playing in 14 games as a rookie and led the team with 608 rushing yards while also rushing for three touchdowns. He exploded onto the scene in 2006, gashing defenses for a franchise-record 1,695 yards and becoming the first 49er running back to ever lead the NFC in rushing.

Gore ended up reaching the 1,000 yard plateau in each of the next three seasons while playing for a perennial bottom feeder in the NFC West. After running for only 853 yards during the 2010 campaign, he bounced back and rushed for over 1,000 yards in each of the next three seasons, helping lead the 49ers to three consecutive NFC Championship appearances and a berth in Super Bowl XLVII against the Baltimore Ravens.
