In his first complete season with WSU, White helped the Cougars earn a title at the Pacific Invitational, WSU’s fifth victory in four seasons. White assisted in the success of redshirt-senior Sang Lee, who averaged the fourth-best season scoring average in WSU history. Freshman Derek Bayley also showed growth under the guidance of White, with the lowest scoring average by a freshman in school history.
During his time at WSU, White has also overseen the academic success of the Cougars with five Pac-12 All-Academic selections. During the 2013-14 season, Michael Anderson was named a Cleveland Golf/Srixon All-America Scholar.
In White’s first season in Pullman, senior Blake Snyder was named All-Pac-12 honorable mention as he finished tied for fourth at the Pac-12 Championships, the best finish by a Cougar at the conference championships in school history.
White returned to his alma mater after being a standout for the Cougars from 1999-2003. He was a three-time All-Pac-10 selection, including a first team honoree in 2002. That season, his junior campaign, he set a school record with eight top 10 finishes, earned his first-tournament victory and won a national player of the week honor.
As a sophomore, White began the season with a school-record tying 65 at the Northwest Classic in Corvallis, Ore. He earned one of his school record 17-career top 10 finishes at the event. He placed in the top 25 of a tournament 27 times, second in Cougar history.
