Pat White, West Virginia
White had a historic career at West Virginia, including a stellar performance in a victory over Oklahoma in the 2008 Fiesta Bowl. He is the only quarterback in history to start and win four bowl games in his career. When his college career was over, he held the record for most rushing yards by a quarterback and was one of the most decorated players in West Virginia history.
Despite an imperfect skill set, White was selected by the Miami Dolphins in the 2nd Round of the 2009 draft. But his magical collegiate career didn’t translate to the NFL. White was cut by the Dolphins after just one season. After he was cut by a team in the CFL, White decided to retire from pro football with five career NFL pass attempts, none of which were completed, although he did rush for 81 yards. He then gave pro baseball a try after being a 4th-round pick coming out of high school. However, baseball didn’t work out for White, who returned to football as a coach and became the quarterbacks coach at Alcorn State in 2018.
