White Playing Multiple Roles

As Round Rock Stony Point looks to increase its offensive output, the coaching staff started moving one of its best weapons around.

Tyler White is a versatile player with nice size (6-1 210) and a 40-yard dash clocking in the 4.55-second range. And he started the season as a sticky-handed tight end for Stony Point. But as the offense began to struggle, the staff moved White around to where he's playing more split out as a wide receiver, while also spending time in a fullback, H-back and running back role.

"Last week was the first week I lined up in the backfield, and I ran the ball pretty well," White said. "I'm looking forward to doing it more this game."

White believes that the offensive changes, and the gained experience, will help Stony Point fight its way back into the playoffs.

Coming from last year, we had just two returning players on offense," White said. "I believe that this game will be a big win for us in district play."

White's size, speed and versatility has earned him attention from in-state schools like Baylor, Houston and SMU, and while he's still waiting for his first offer, he said several teams have said they're interested to see his senior film.
