The Impressive NFL Career of Todd Gurley
The recipient of a bachelor's degree in risk management and insurance from the University of Georgia, Scott G. Sink is an experienced insurance professional who has served as the senior executive vice president of insurance company McGriff, Seibels & Williams since 1994. Although he now resides in Birmingham, Alabama, Scott G. Sink remains a passionate fan of his alma mater's football team.
Dozens of University of Georgia alumni are in the National Football League (NFL), but few have been as impactful as Todd Gurley. A 24-year-old native of Baltimore, Maryland, Gurley registered 3,285 rushing yards, 615 receiving yards, and 42 touchdowns over the course of 30 games with the Bulldogs from 2012 to 2014. He was selected 10th overall in the 2015 NFL Draft by the St. Louis Rams.
Gurley was named the AP Offensive Rookie of the Year in 2015 after he registered 1,106 rushing yards and 188 receiving yards to go along with 10 touchdowns. He had an off year in 2016 but has been one of the league's best running backs in the two seasons since.
Gurley led the league in rushing touchdowns with 13 in 2017, when he won the AP Offensive Player of the Year. He has already matched that number through the first 11 games of the 2018 season. He also led the NFL in total yards from scrimmage (2,093) in 2017 and is leading in that category once again this season with 1,484 combined rushing and receiving yards.
