Stanford running back Toby Gerhart has put himself into contention for the Heisman Trophy with his late season rushing heroics.  The 6-1, 235 lb Gerhart has averaged 185 yards over the last four games and scored 13 touchdowns, bringing his season totals to 1736 yards and 26 touchdowns.  ESPN's "Heisman Watch" has him 3rd in the projected Heisman rankings at the moment.

We remember Gerhart from the 2005 PG National Showcase in Atlanta.  We knew Gerhart, then listed at 6-1, 218, was a primary football player but he was certainly impressive on the baseball field.  He ran a scorching 6.35 in the 60 and impressed with his power potential.  Here's his report from that event.
