Bio

Todd Gurley was born in Tarboro, North Carolina on August 3, 1994. A running back for the Georgia Bulldogs, he was named as a Freshman All-American in 2012, after becoming only the second player in the school's history to rush for over 1,000 yards as a true freshman.

Gurley's football career began at Tarboro High School, where he enjoyed an excellent senior year, helping the team to win the 2A North Carolina State Title. During the season, he rushed for 2,600 yards and was credited with a total of 38 touchdowns. In the State Championship Game, Gurley contributed 242 rushing yards and four touchdowns, helping Tarboro to beat Lincolnton. His performances saw him honored by the Associated Press as North Carolina's Player of the Year.

Regarded as one of the top running back prospects of his class, Gurley committed to the University of Georgia and saw action as a true freshman. Despite starting as backup to Ken Malcome, he saw increased involvement after a strong start and helped the team to win the SEC East. Over the course of the year, he rushed for 1,385 yards and 17 touchdowns, including more than 1,000 rushing yards during the regular season.

Gurley finished the year with an average of 124.6 all-purpose yards per game and the team finished with a 12-2 record and were ranked number 3 in the nation. At the end of the season, he was a first team All-SEC selection by the Associated Press; the only true freshman to be included in the team, and also received Freshman All-American honors. Although the team was ultimately unsuccessful against Alabama in the SEC Championship Game, he was able to score two touchdowns.

As a sophomore, Gurley was slightly less productive, registering 989 rushing yards and 10 rushing touchdowns in total. However, he did achieve a career-best 75 yard touchdown run in a game against Clemson, after which he was named as the SEC's Offensive Player of the Week for the first time. In addition, he added six touchdown receptions and significantly improved his receiving yards total from his freshman year, rising from 117 yards to 441 yards.
