Bio

2017 (Redshirt Senior): White capped his career on The Hill with eight consecutive 300-yard passing games, the longest streak in the nation. He finished fourth nationally with 4,177 yards and second with 560 attempts, while leading the country with 368 completions. The senior had at least 20 completions and 30 attempts in all 13 games. White accounted for 81.2 percent of the Hilltoppers' total offense through the air, leading to the No.7 passing offense in the nation. He led WKU with six rushing touchdowns, including a career-high two scores at UTEP. He is the first quarterback in program history to receive an invitation from the Senior Bowl, and is the second field general with an invite to the NFL Scouting Combine. White finished third in program history with 8,540 passing yards and fourth with 648 career completions, meanwhile his 368 completions in 2017 were the third-most in a WKU single-season. He set an all-time Hilltopper record by going 161 passes in-between interceptions, with the streak ending on the final attempt of his collegiate career vs. Georgia State in the 2017 Cure Bowl.

2016 (Redshirt Junior): White had the unenviable task of following up WKU's all-everything quarterback in Brandon Doughty and responded in dynamic fashion, leading an offensive attack that led the FBS in points per game (45.5) and was No. 3 in passing efficiency (174.87), No. 5 in total offense (523.1) and No. 5 in passing offense (336.8). White finished his first campaign on The Hill No. 3 nationally in passing efficiency (181.4) and passing yards per completion (15.58) - both the top marks in Conference USA. White completed 280 of 416 passes for 4,363 yards with 37 touchdowns to just seven interceptions. White's eight games of 300 yards or more passing were fifth-most nationally and his 76 completions of 68 yards or more were second-most nationally. He led the nation in passing completions of 30 yards (44) and 40 yards (24) or more. White joined Doughty as the only quarterbacks in school history to eclipse the 4,000 yard mark in a season while his 181.39 passer rating set a single-season school record. White had a completion percentage of 65-percent or better in eight games, and against C-USA opponents, he was even more lethal, completing 71.1 percent of his passes for 25 touchdowns to just two interceptions. 

2015 (Junior): White sat out the season due to NCAA transfer requirements. 

2013-2014 (At USF): White was a two-year starter for the Bulls at quarterback where he completed 215-of-417 (51.5-percent) pass attempts for 2,722 yards with 11 touchdowns and 16 interceptions. White was thrown into the fire as a true freshman, starting five games for the Bulls in 2013 and 10 games in 2014 as a true sophomore. His best outing came in his debut, throwing for 311 yards on 26-of-41 passing with two touchdowns at Houston (10/31/14). White was presented with the Frank Morsani Leadership Award at the annual USF post-season banquet following his freshman season.

High School: White prepped for Roger Harriott at University School and was named the 3A Florida Player of the Year as a senior.

White was named the Broward County Player of the Year and a first-team all-Broward pick by the Miami Herald as he completed 176-of-256 passes (68.8%) for 2,201 yards, 22 TDs and just two INTs. He led University to a 13-0 record and the 3A state championship and anchored an offense that posted 346.2 yards and 39.8 points per game. He went 22-of-31 for 282 yards and two TDs iin the Sun's state-title victory over Madison County/ White was also a standout baseball player and was named a Louisville Slugger All-American as a junior. He earned first-team all-Broward honors from the Miami Herald as a pitcher, going 9-2 with a 0.43 ERA.
