Gurley MVP as NC wins Shrine Bowl

Tarboro running back Todd Gurley was named the Offensive Most Valuable Player of the Shrine Bowl of the Carolinas after lifting the North Carolina Tar Heels to a 26-19 win.

The win avenges last year's loss to the South Carolina Sandlappers in the annual all-star game.

After North Carolina trailed 13-6 at halftime, Gurley scored two touchdowns in the second half to give the Tar Heels the lead.

Greensboro Page quarterback James Summers, an NC State recruit, broke a run to the South Carolina 1-yard line in the third quarter. Two plays later, Gurley scored the 1-yard touchdown run to tie the game at 13-13.

North Carolina's defense stepped up in the second half. South Carolina faced a fourth down on its ensuing possession and a fake punt attempt failed.

After the Tar Heels took over, Gurley scored his second touchdown of the game from the 13-yard line to give North Carolina a 20-13 lead, a lead it would never lose.
