Post Derrick White’s comeback

Thursday July 17, 2008

Linebacker Derrick White was the Michael Lemon of the 2005 season. Just months after a bar fight earned White a suspension, he was arrested for DUI and dismissed from the Georgia team. White finished his college career at Clark Atlanta.

Fortunately the rest of the story is mostly positive for Derrick. Marc Weiszer points to a feature on White that tracks his progress in arena football and, more importantly, the turnaround in his life.

White is now married and a key defensive member of the AIFA’s Mississippi MudCats. He has also spent some time in the Arena League. He’s now focused on “setting a good example, being a good teammate and putting himself in a position to leave every game with no regrets.” That’s quite a turnaround for someone who was described by Coach Richt as having “a past history of behavior that does not represent (Georgia’s) program in the proper way.”

Not surprisingly, White speaks well of Richt.
