While at West Virginia Pat White was one of the most exciting and dynamic collegiate quarterbacks in recent memory. His name can be found throughout the school, NCAA, and Big East conference record books.
During his time in Morgantown White rushed for over 4,000 yards, passed for over 6,000, and accounted for 103 total touchdowns. Het set 19 NCAA, conference, and school records over his four years and helped the Mountaineers win four bowl games. White became the first player in Big East history to amass 10,000 yards of offense and was the conference’s Offensive Player of the Year twice.
White was selected in the second round, 44th overall, by the Miami Dolphins in the 2009 NFL draft. His NFL career consisted of just 5 pass attempts for 0 yards, 21 rushes for 81 yards, and 0 touchdowns before he was waived in 2010.
The former pitcher and outfielder growing up in Alabama, who helped his high school win two state championships, decided to revive his baseball career by signing a minor league contract with the Kansas City Royals. White would announce his retirement last year.
This time Pat White is opting for a non-athletic career path and is giving acting a shot.
“I’ll be taking some workshops and I’ve got to work on some headshots,” White said. “Those will be coming up here soon.”
If White has even a fraction of the success he had in a West Virginia uniform in front of the cameras he will make this latest venture worthwhile for himself.
