VIDEO: Todd Gurley High School Football Highlights From 2011 Are Ridiculous
Missing football while the sports world is on hold? Atlanta Falcons fans can fill the void with some incredible throwback highlights from Todd Gurley's 2011 high school season.
Playing both running back and defense at Tarboro High School in North Carolina, Gurley looked like an absolute monster, showcasing why he was a highly touted running back recruit.
A multi-sport athlete that also excelled as a sprinter (competing for team USA in the 110-meter hurdles in the 2011 World Youth Championships), Gurley showed his freak athleticism in multiple areas. He impressed as a junior, with 1,472 rushing yards and 26 touchdowns while adding 79 tackles on defense.
Things really picked up in his senior year, when he racked up 2,600 yards and 38 touchdowns, carrying his team to the 2A North Carolina State Championship and earning North Carolina AP Player of the Year honors.
He went on to dominate with the Georgia Bulldogs as well, rushing for 1,385 yards and 17 touchdowns as a freshman, and finishing his career in Athens with 3,900 yards from scrimmage and 42 touchdowns across 30 games. He established himself as one of the greatest running backs in Georgia history.
Injuries held him back in 2019, but his NFL career has been incredible as well. A two-time first-team All-Pro (2017 and 2018), Gurley has already racked up 7,494 yards from scrimmage and 70 total touchdowns through five NFL seasons.
Falcons fans have to be excited about what he's going to bring to the offense in 2020.
