Jason White, Oklahoma
Before Sam Bradford would go on to do the same for the University of Oklahoma Sooners, it was Jason White who would not only win the Heisman Trophy (in 2003), but also win the Davey O’Brien Award in back-to-back seasons (2003 and 2004), throwing for a combined 75 touchdown passes over that span. He also took the Sooners to two straight National Championships but lost them both (including a lopsided loss at the hands of USC). Nevertheless, he’s still considered a legend around those parts of the state.
After leaving Oklahoma following the 2004 season, White went undrafted, although the Tennessee Titans did sign him to a two-year deal. White retired because of continued issues with his knees but has become a successful businessman. He briefly co-owned a team in the now-defunct Indoor Football League and has a bronze statue in his honor on the University of Oklahoma campus.
