Georgia offensive coordinator Mike Bobo wants Todd Gurley to be a leader


The 2014 college football season will be the third–and more than likely final–year for stud running back Todd Gurley with the Georgia Bulldogs. Although having to deal with some injuries, Gurley has been the most formidable force on the field in Athens since his true freshman year, however this season, offensive coordinator wants to see more out of his running back than just bowling over defenders. He wants Gurley to step up to the plate and lead the ‘Dawgs.

“I believe he’s at the point in his career, as a third-year guy, he’s got to step up and be a leader for this football team,” Georgia offensive coordinator Mike Bobo said according to the Atlanta Journal Constitution on Wednesday. He’s not a big talker but he can step up and be a leader by how he practices and that’s what I’m looking for this spring.”

With one of the most successful quarterbacks in SEC history, Aaron Murray, having graduated, it is time for Gurley to take the reins of the Georgia team this season.
