HOOVER, Ala. (AP) – Todd Gurley doesn’t get too excited talking about being a potential Heisman Trophy candidate, but can’t restrain a smile thinking about one milestone that’s probably unrealistic.
That’s the idea of duplicating the 2,000-yard season of Boston College’s Andre Williams.
Gurley says such a feat "would be awesome" but also hard to manage in the Southeastern Conference. He still enters his junior season as one of the nation’s premier tailbacks in a league with no shortage of star runners.
Gurley has run for 2,374 yards and 27 touchdowns the past two seasons but missed three games in 2013 with an ankle injury.
He says the Heisman is a team award but knows it probably won’t happen if the Bulldogs have another 8-5 season.

Rick Nyman grew up in Anniston, Alabama and attended the University of Alabama. His television career started at WJSU-TV in Anniston where he had the opportunity to cover SEC football with Alabama and Auburn. Anniston is just 20 minutes from the Talladega Speedway, so NASCAR was a big part of his sports coverage. Due to this he was able to interview Davey Allison, Dale Earnhardt, Jeff Gordon, and several other top-name NASCAR drivers. Rick's next television job was in Savannah, Georgia, where he covered basketball player Kwame Brown (now with the Washington Wizards), who later became the first ever high school player selected as the top pick in the NBA draft. He covered the PGA Tour's annual swing thru Hilton Head and also had the opportunity of covering the Atlanta Falcons Super Bowl appearance in 1999 in Miami. Rick especially enjoys all the atmosphere, tradition and drama of college football. He also likes profiling sports personalities and learning what drives them both on and off the field. If he's not covering sports, he's either watching Seinfield or David Letterman, playing golf, reading, or working out. What he enjoys about Chattanooga is the passion people have for sports. The mountainous region of Chattanooga reminds him of his hometown of Anniston, which also has big, beautiful trees and plenty of hills. You can contact Rick at rnyman@wdef.com.
