DAVIE, Fla. (AP) - As a kid growing up in Central Florida, Mike Gillislee idolized one of his Miami Dolphins predecessors at running back.
``Ricky Williams,'' Gillislee said Saturday. ``His vision, the way he ran the ball . he was a very tough running back. And I liked that he was humble, he didn't say very much.
Gillislee now follows in Williams' cleat marks as a soft-spoken Dolphins rusher. In his only year as a Florida starter, Gillislee last season ran for 1,152 yards (4.7 avg.) to become the Gators' first 1,000-yard rusher since Ciatrick Fason in 2004.
Gillislee hasn't gone unnoticed even though veterans Lamar Miller and Daniel Thomas began training camp higher on the Dolphins depth chart.
