The raw numbers don't even tell half the story though. Speaking with Gardner's coach at Salem, Chris Beatty, one is able to get a better understanding of how good a player Gardner is. "He's a burner," said Coach Beatty. "He had 10 touchdown runs over 40 yards last season. He had over 500 yards receiving too. We through the bal to him a lot out of the backfield, and he does a real good job of pass protection. That's one of the reasons I think he can play early next year; he is so good in the passing game as well as rushing the ball."
Gardner whose best 40 time is 4.37 uses his speed as his main weapon. "I'll do whatever it takes to get the score," said Gardner. "But I like to run around people; it's fun to get in to the endzone untouched. Barry Sanders was my idol growing up. He's the reason I started playing football. I don't have quite the wiggle that he does, but I like to move in and out like he did."
