Tarboro High School running back Todd Gurley is hoping to lead his Vikings to a third consecutive 2-A State championship before heading off to an ACC or SEC school for college.
Last season Gurley put up huge numbers on the field both on offense and defense in route to being named the most valuable player of the 2-A state title game. Gurley rushed for nearly 1,500 yards and 26 touchdowns. He scored a touchdown passing and receiving and also scored twice on kickoffs.
On Defense Gurley had 79 tackles, an interception and a forced fumble.
While he is certainly a force on the football field, Todd Gurley is also a track star at Tarboro High School recently running for Team USA at the World Youth Championships in France.
