Georgia’s RB Todd Gurley II and UCLA’s LB Eric Kendricks Named Walter Camp National FBS Players of the Week. Herschel Walker only Dawg to win Walter Camp POY Award.

Todd Gurley II scored 3 rushing TD, had 1 catch, amassed 198 rushing yards on 15 carries, scored a TD on his 2nd 100-yard TD kick-off return by Todd Gurley II, and twice shoved Hutson Mason into the End Zone when he was stopped and beat # 16 AP Poll and # 16 USA Today Coaches’ Amway Poll Clemson, who ended last season # 9, and who was said to have a great Defense.

Herschel Walker is the only Georgia Bulldog to ever win the Walter Camp National Player of the Year Award.

There have been 16 Georgia Bulldogs named Walter Camp All-America, the most recent of which is Jarvis Jones who 3 times won Walter Camp National FBS Player of the Week.  Other Walter Camp All-America players for Georgia besides Jarvis Jones LB are Drew Butler P, Max Jean-Gilles OL, Greg Blue S, Thomas Davis S, Jon Stinchcomb OL, Joel Parrish OL, Randy Johnson OL, Royce Smith OL, Jake Scott S, Bill Stanfill DT, Edgar Chandler OL, Frank Sinkwich HB, Tom A. Nash E, Joe Bennett T, and Charley Trippi TB.

There were no Walter Camp All-America players named from Georgia last season, on either the 1st or 2nd team.

Fairly amazing again that when we returned from Athens, ESPN was running a spot every 15 minutes all day Sunday about the 4 best Performances of the Day, all against Cupcakes, and Todd Gurley II was not even included in the 4 anyone in the nation could even vote on.

Bullshit.  Pure unadulterated Bullshit.

Todd Gurley II was given the nod over Kenny Hill Texas A&M.

The Walter Camp Foundation’s prestigious Awards are carefully measured by the head coaches and the sports’ information directors to insure moral fiber.

Todd Gurley II is of fine moral fiber from Tarboro North Carolina, where they do not have a football team and have not had a football team.  Many of our top recruits come from both North and South Carolina.  He is a Business Major at The University of Georgia, as I.

He is 6′ 1″ and 226 lbs of all muscle.

He was the North Carolina High School Player of the Year 2011, and is only 20 years’ of age.

He is an accomplished receiver with 54 catches already now, and has played here already as many years as Knowshon Moreno.  This is his final season with us. He is our Captain.  He now has over 2,500 yards rushing.

He averages over 6 yards per carry and over 10 yards per catch.

Perhaps the nation’s most feared kick-off returner, he leads the cheers on the sidelines.  Everyone at the game Saturday noticed him on the sidelines, and how not only all the other players came over to congratulate him every one of his plays, but how he was the 1st to lead the cheers for his teammates.

When he came here, he was very quiet.  Time has not changed him much.  While there were accolades heaped upon Keith Marshall, there were low rumblings of the awesomeness of Todd Gurley II.  No one calls him Todd Gurley II, only I.

When Hutson Mason was struggling Saturday to throw completions of 4 yards, he wanted the ball.  When Hutson Mason struggled against Georgie tek to fall behind 20 to nothing, he had every touch in both over-times and scored 4 consecutive touchdowns, our only 4 of the game to beat Georgie tek.

He ran 10.7 seconds in the 100 meter dash, and competed # 15 in the World Youth Championships in France. He is named for his father, Todd Gerome Gurley.

He was given a scholarship offer as the # 5 best running back in the nation from Clemson, North Carolina University, North Carolina State University, Virginia Tech, Georgie tek and Auburn.  SEC schools were slow on the uptake up in North Carolina and he wanted to pry his trade here, as one of the nation’s best pass blockers.

His parents are proud of him.  His dad lives in Baltimore, Maryland – not far from Washington, D.C.

He will name his son the III.  They put that on the back of Joe Tereshinski III, but refused until last season to put II on Todd Gurley II’s Jersey.
