On Friday night, Pensacola (Fla.) Catholic won a hard fought game against DeFuniak Springs (Fla.) Walton. Offensively, the Crusaders got a big game from senior quarterback Shaun White, who was playing on an injured ankle that had held him out for their previous two games.
"I just did it for my teammates," White said. "I knew how big of a game this was for us, so I knew I had to play my heart out. I left it on the field tonight."
The 6-foot, 200-pound quarterback has had a strong career at Catholic and this season has been no different. Entering Friday's game, White had thrown for 1181 yards and nine touchdowns and rushed for five more. Colleges have taken notice of the talented signal-caller.
"UAB, Middle Tennesseee, (Louisiana) Lafayette, Vanderbilt, Southern Miss, and my coach told me Memphis starting showing interest," White said.
This weekend, White traveled to Vanderbilt for the Commodores homecoming game against South Carolina. Prior to that visit, White had been to Louisiana-Lafayette and Alabama-Birmingham. At this point, the Blazers have made a major impression on the three-star quarterback.
"I am the number one guy for them," White said. "Our offense is like their offense, so I think I would be perfect in their offense."
While Neil Callaway's team has done an effective job recruiting White, he was hesitant to name them his leader on Friday.
"They are up there," White said. "I want to take some visits and see some schools. But they (UAB) are definitely going to be in it until the end."
His final decision will come after Catholic's season has concluded.
"I will decide after my season but before Signing Day," White said. "Basically I just want to find a place where I fit the offense. I want to play quarterback wherever I end up at."
Catholic is 8-0 on the season and returns to act on Nov. 5th against Chipley.
