NORMAN – Due to Oklahoma’s many inconsistencies throughout the season, linebacker TheShaun White is a source of reliability on and off the field.

White, a fifth grader, has been through it all during his time with Norman. He has switched positions several times and has been asked to fill in many holes during defensive battles underneath Mike Stoops, Ruffin McNeill, Alex Grinch and now ted roof.

Now, once again at a new position, he’s having his best year in Oklahoma. White has transitioned into a linebacker/safety hybrid role Brent Venables‘ Cheetah Spot and has been a consistent contributor throughout the season. He has registered 76 total tackles, is good for third on the team and ranks first in defense with five pass deflections. White also recorded two sacks and two interceptions.
