"We got the call from coach," said White. "I think it was monster, and Jerel (Worthy) got a good surge off the ball. I followed right behind him, jumped as high as I could and blocked it.
"I knew I had blocked it. I didn't pay any attention if it went forward or backward. I just knew I blocked it, and the game was over."
For White, just getting the start meant two teammates missed time on the field. How did he respect his fallen teammates?
"I told Pick (Kevin Pickelman) and Stray (Jonathan Strayhorn) from the beginning that I owed them," said White. "They helped me out so much. I told Pick I was going to dedicate this game to him, since I owed him. This was a great game."
Following the game White saw how much the teams victory meant for his head coach and the program going forward.
"The facial expressions just say it all, especially from Coach D after the game," said White. "Everyone was just excited. This win shows that we will be ready for next season. We have a lot of players coming back. We'll be ready."
