High school career[edit]

Hyde grew up in Cincinnati, Ohio. He attended Princeton High School in Sharonville, Ohio, for his freshman year. He then moved to Naples, Florida, and attended Naples High School for the remainder of high school. He rushed for 1,653 yards and 16 touchdowns for the football team as a senior, and was named Player of the Year after his senior season by both the Naples Daily News and the Ft. Myers News-Press.[2] He played on the 2007 Naples state championship winning team and 2008 regional finalist. He also played basketball, ran track, and mentored elementary school children.

Considered a four-star recruit by Rivals.com, he was rated as the 2nd best fullback in the nation.[3] He committed to Ohio State University over scholarship offers from the University of Florida, the University of Miami, and Florida State University.[4]

College career[edit]

Hyde enrolled at Ohio State in January 2010. Hyde played primarily as a backup running back in his first two seasons before breaking out in his junior season with 970 yards and 16 rushing touchdowns in less than 10 games after missing two because of an ankle issue. He was named second-team All-Big Ten that year.[5]

Going into his senior season with high expectations, Hyde was suspended for the first three games of the season after being implicated in an incident at a local bar, though he was not criminally charged in the matter.[6] Hyde returned from his suspension to finish the season strong with 1,282 yards and 14 touchdowns over his last eight games. On October 5, Hyde ran for his first 100-yard and multi-touchdown game of the season when he ran for 168 yards and three touchdowns when the Buckeyes played Northwestern.

San Francisco 49ers[edit]

2014 season[edit]

There were large expectations for Hyde coming into an already crowded backfield. With a large amount of depth at the position, Hyde had to compete against Kendall Hunter, LaMichael James, Marcus Lattimore, and 49ers all-time leading rusher, Frank Gore.[10] A series of injuries would move Hyde up the depth chart to the back up running back behind Gore. Last seasons backup running back Kendall Hunter tore his ACL during training camp, Marcus Lattimore retired due to a previously suffered ACL and MCL tear in college, and LaMichael James sprained his elbow. James was later released by the team. In the season opener against the Dallas Cowboys, Hyde rushed for 50 yards on 7 carries and 1 Touchdown [11] Over the next couple weeks the team wouldn't feature Hyde very much giving him a total of just 7 carries. In week 10 vs the New Orleans Saints during a close game, the team would turn to Frank Gore leaning on him, leaving Hyde on the bench for most the game but hyde showed a lot of promise rushing for 36 yards on 4 carries and 1 touchdown. After two straight losses the 49ers were eliminated from playoffs so the team would look to get the young guys more reps. In week 15 against the Seahawks Hyde was playing well until he was benched in the fourth quarter as a result of a sprained ankle and back injury he suffered during the game. Hyde would miss the final two games of the season. He finished the season with 83 carries for 333 yards and 4 Touchdowns.

2015 season[edit]

After the 49ers chose not re-sign Frank Gore, he would sign with the Indianapolis Colts. Hyde entered the season as the front runner to replace Gore, but he was in competition for the starting job against Mike Davis, Reggie Bush, and former rugby league star Jarryd Hayne. He was named starter for the 2015 season. In the season opener Hyde had the best game of his career, rushing for a career-high 168 yards on 26 carries and 2 touchdowns, one TD coming on an amazing spin move, against the Minnesota Vikings.[12] Over the next few weeks the team would suffer two blowout losses on the road against the Pittsburgh Steelers and Arizona Cardinals and a home loss to the Green Bay Packers as a result to the team focused on the passing game to score points, abandoning the running game. In Week 5 against the New York Giants the team was more balanced, Hyde rushed for 93 yards on 21 carries and 1 touchdown. Despite his successful game, the 49ers lost on a last minute Touchdown pass from Eli Manning to Larry Donnell with 21 seconds on the clock. More bad news came after the loss Hyde fractured his foot during the game. He would play the next 2 games dealing with the injury but was shut down in week 8 and did not return for the rest of the season. He needed surgery to repair the stress fracture. On December 12, Hyde was placed on Injured Reserve.[13] Hyde finished with 115 carries for 470 yards and 3 Touchdowns.

2016 season[edit]

Hyde entered the 2016 season as one of the few bright spots on the 49ers offense. Hyde was expected to have a large volume of work as the 49ers starting running back, the teams new head coach Chip Kelly's offense relies on a good rushing attack. In the season opener, the team shutout the LA Rams in a 28-0 victory, Hyde had a great game rushing for 88 yards and 2 Touchdowns. [14] In Week 2, the 49ers faced the defending NFC Champion Carolina Panthers and their Top 10 defense. Hyde had a slow start to the game when he fumbled the ball and the defense returned it for a touchdown. He would then split playing time with Shaun Draughn due to his fumble. The offense couldn't run the ball consistently in the first half. After halftime, the Panthers offense took off and the 49ers stopped running the ball in an attempt to play catch. Hyde didn't get many carries after that. He finished the game with 14 carries for 34 yards. In Week 3 against The Rival Seattle Seahawks Hyde had a good game although the offense had a slow start to the game including Hyde only rushing for 23 yards in the first half. In the second half the passing attack was ineffective against the Seahawks "Legion of Boom" but Hyde and the rushing attack were more effective as the game got later, Hyde rushed for two 8 yard Touchdowns in the 4th Quarter. He finished with 21 carries for 103 yards and 2 Touchdowns. Over the next 2 weeks Hyde would keep his momentum rushing for 74 yards and 1 Touchdown and 78 yards and 1 Touchdown in Weeks 4 & 5. The Next week Hyde rushed for 54 yards on 14 carries then Hyde suffered a sprained right shoulder and was sidelined the next two games. In Week 11 against the New England Patriots the team played well keeping the game close until the 4th Quarter when the Patriots outscored the 49ers 17 to 7. Hyde finished the game with 19 carries for 86 yards. In Week 13 vs the Chicago Bears due to bad weather, both teams passing attack struggled and would rely on the run game, Hyde finished the game with 20 carries for 92 yards. The next week Hyde rushed for 193 yards and 1 receiving touchdown in an overtime loss against the New York Jets.[15] Hyde started 13 games in 2016 finishing the season with 217 carries for 988 yards and six touchdowns along with 27 receptions for 163 yards and three touchdowns and was named an alternate for the Pro Bowl. Unfortunately, Hyde was placed on injured reserve on December 27, 2016 after suffering an MCL injury.[16][17] Hyde missed his preseason goal of 1,000 rushing yards by 12 yards

2017 season[edit]

During the offseason, the 49ers new head coach Kyle Shanahan and GM John Lynch brought in a lot of competition at the running back position. Hyde welcomed the challenge, saying "that just pushes me to take my game to the next level, I want to be the starter." [18] Hyde entered in the 2017 season looking tremendous, he arrived to training camp in great shape weighing 228 pounds. In an interview Hyde was quoted saying “This is the lightest I’ve been since high school, I’m in the best shape of my life right now."[19]
