Georgia's Gurley: 2,000 yards 'would be awesome'

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.
