Oklahoma QB Jason White…Where Are They Now?

Jason White, the former quarterback for the University of Oklahoma, had a remarkable college football career. He was the 2003 Heisman Trophy winner and unanimous 1st team All-American. He also was the 04’ Maxwell Award winner and a 2 time Davey O’Brien Award winner among many other accolades including a 2000 BCS National Championship. He was granted an extra year of eligibility by the NCAA due to injuries in his career and made the most of it leaving the Sooners as the all-time leader in passing yards and touchdowns.

Football after college

After his time at Oklahoma, White's life took an unexpected turn, leading him down a different path than many anticipated including himself. Following his college career, White declared for the NFL Draft in 2005. However, due to concerns about his durability and knee injuries, he went undrafted. This setback marked a turning point in White's life, as he decided to retire from football and pursue other opportunities. He did eventually sign as a undrafted free agent with the Tennessee Titans before retiring.

Adjusting to life after football

In the years that followed, White focused on his education and personal life. He completed his degree in business administration from the University of Oklahoma, showing his determination to succeed both on and off the field. White also got married and started a family, prioritizing his role as a husband and father.

Despite leaving football behind, White remained connected to the sport. He became involved in coaching and mentoring young athletes, sharing his knowledge and experiences to help them navigate their own football journeys. This allowed him to stay connected to the game he loved while also making a positive impact on the lives of aspiring athletes.

Combining business with sports

In recent years, White has shifted his focus to entrepreneurship. He co-founded a company called "TrophySmack," which specializes in creating custom trophies and awards for various sports leagues. This venture has allowed him to combine his passion for sports with his business acumen, showcasing his ability to adapt and find success in new endeavors.

Life lessons we all could learn from

Today, Jason White lives a quiet life in his hometown of Tuttle, Oklahoma (a small town of about 6000). He continues to balance his roles as a family man, entrepreneur, and mentor. While his football career may not have unfolded as expected, he has found fulfillment in other areas of his life. White's determination, resilience, and ability to adapt have been key factors in his post-football success, proving that sometimes the greatest victories in life come off the field.
