MSU’s White claims Conerly Trophy

Two years ago, Chris White was a lightly recruited linebacker who garnered just two scholarship offers from Football Bowl Subdivision programs before deciding to play for Mississippi State.

It’s become pretty obvious the Bulldogs hit the jackpot.

White won the Cellular South Conerly Trophy on Tuesday night, an honor given to Mississippi’s top college football player. The other finalists were Jackson State quarterback Casey Therriault and Southern Miss quarterback Austin Davis. (December 1, 2010, Page 7)
