White Named Athletic Director of Ridgeland High School
Ridgeland High School proudly announces the selection of David White as Athletic Director and head football coach. White joins the Titan team from Reno, Nevada, where he currently serves the University of Nevada football program as the coordinator of recruiting and running back coach.
While at Nevada, White guided players to numerous accolades, including Mountain West Player of the Week. Prior to Nevada, White served as the director of player development at the Army All-American Bowl and as the director of the FBU All-American Bowl. White served in this capacity for six years, evaluating and recruiting prospective U.S. Army All-American Bowl players nationwide.
“I have a strong conviction that preparation is the key to success. I emphasize the complete student-athlete, where you must balance academics with athletics I tell my players that their leadership doesn’t disappear once they take their uniforms off, but carries over into the classroom, the community, and the rest of their life,” says White.
White’s college coaching experience follows years of national prominence as a head football coach at the high school level. In Nevada he built the Bishop Gorman High School football program from the ground up, leading the team to victory in three conference championships. During his four-year tenure as head coach, Bishop Gorman went 30-12 overall. White coached five All-Americans and sent 38 players to play at the NCAA level.
As a player, White was named to the all-conference team as a tight end in 1994 while playing for the University of Nevada Las Vegas. After graduating from UNLV he played in the Arena League and the European Federation of American Football (EFAF) for two seasons, splitting time in France and Switzerland.
Coach White will begin work at Ridgeland immediately.
