This time with the UFL’s newest franchise, the Destroyers.
After being let go by the Dolphins in 2010, Pat signed a minor league contract with baseball’s Kansas City Royals to play in their minor league system.
While at West Virginia, White became the only collegiate quarterback to win four bowl games as a starter, guiding his team to wins in the Sugar Bowl (2005), Gator Bowl (2006), Fiesta Bowl (2007) and Meineke Bowl (2008).
He also ran for 4,480 yards on 684 attempts and scored 47 TDs on the ground.
In his four years at West Virginia, White scored 112 touchdowns for the Mountaineers.
With the Dolphins, White saw very little time under center in 2009-2010, appearing in 13 games. In those 13 appearances, Pat had only five attempts passing with no completions and 81 yards on the ground on 21 attempts.
After his questionable high draft pick in 2009 by the Dolphins, many feel that the “White Experiment” was a failure for Miami.
Though his NFL career did not start or pan out like he and many thought it would. White says he is ready to get back out on the field in professional football in the UFL.
“I didn’t know whether or not this would happen,” White said in an interview with sportingnews.com. “It’s a blessing and playing [for the Destroyers] is a great opportunity.”
The Destroyers director of player personal also said in the interview that White was competitive and a good athlete as well as being a leader on and off the field.
I’m sure the people of Virginia are eager to see Pat back on the field in their neck of the woods once again.
