.The game marks a homecoming for White, a Daphne native who will play in "a game I've watched since the very first year of my life, probably."
Once again, he gets to prove he can play quarterback. Auburn and Alabama weren't convinced of that when he was being recruited out of high school, leading him to head to West Virginia.
The prolific and athletic White is trying to answer skeptics who wonder if he will land at quarterback or possibly wide receiver in the NFL.
"That's the position that got me here. I played quarterback for six years, two in high school," White said.
White is a record-setting college player with much to show the NFL. He was 4-0 as a starter in bowl games — a first for a quarterback — and a two-time Big East Offensive Player of the Year. White also set the NCAA mark for career rushing yards by a quarterback with 4,480.
What does he want to prove? "That I can play the game of football. That's what we're all here to show."
