More Trendsetters Coming Soon!

Trendsetters World Wide

These quarterbacks are worthy of imitation. They set the bar high and will dominate the football landscape for decades to come. I invite you to follow their journeys as they demonstrate the skills that set them apart from all others.

In a few months Hart High School quarterback Brady White will be heading to Arizona State. Although he will still walk with his senior class next year, he will have already met his graduation requirements by the end of this year. The trendsetter is starting college in January.

 White is part of a growing trend of prep football players looking to get a jumpstart on their college careers by participating in spring practice before fall football season. Instead of struggling through “senioritis” in the spring, White will be taking freshman college classes months before most of his peers do so. He isn’t looking to take easy classes either. Academics were actually a major reason why White ultimately chose ASU.

 “They have an honors college within the university that allows you to push yourself academically and get a better education,” he says. “When I saw that, I was like, it’s got the whole package — it’s got everything i really want.”

 Along with Arizona State, Oregon was an early favorite for White. He actually has a few cousins playing varsity athletics there including two on the softball team and one on the acrobatics and tumbling team.

 The senior quarterback comes from an athletic family. His dad played basketball at Hart and his younger brother, Brevin, is the quarterback at Alemany. White’s been playing football since he was about four or five, he recalls, and he’s been behind center pretty much since then.

He’s also been throwing to Trent Irwin at wide receiver for quite a while too — since seventh grade.

 It’s no surprise that the two are more than just a dynamic QB-WR duo — they’re best friends. ASU is hoping that bond will bring Irwin to Tempe as well. The wide receiver is still considering offers from various schools with ASU and Stanford being his top choices.

 Despite their bond, White says that he hasn’t been able to decipher what Irwin’s ultimate decision will be.

 “He’s actually been really quiet about it,” says White. “Only time will tell. I think he’s going to make a decision in November. Right now I think he’s pretty 50/50.”

 Irwin has been a huge part of White’s success thus far at quarterback. Another key to White’s success is his accuracy. He’s completed 63% of the passes in his high school career. Last week against West Ranch he actually completed 20 of 24 passes.

 This year though, he’s been using his legs more often than usual. He’s averaging 40 rushing yards per game compared to 21 per game last season. He scored two rushing touchdowns in his last game and rushed for all three of Hart’s TDs the previous week. That three touchdown performance was part of a 135 yard rushing game against Canyon — Hart’s biggest rival and a team which had beaten them each of the last four years.

 “It’s just frustrating when you consistently lost to those guys,” White said. He characterized the huge win as “relieving.”

 The win against Canyon was one of a few things White had yet to accomplish going into this season to round out his high school career. Another thing would be winning a League title — a feat which Hart hasn’t accomplished since 2003.

 He’s already led his team to a CIF title though. The team’s CIF championship last year was the program’s first such title in a decade — a long drought after winning 5 in 6 years from 1998-2003.

 “It was unreal,” says White talking about the title game. “It was a great feeling especially beating our crosstown rival (Valencia).”

 White recalls being so amped up about the game which had 10,000 people in attendance that he couldn’t focus on anything else.

 “That week was Finals. Me and Trent had a tutor on Thursday, and I think we just cancelled it when she got there because we couldn’t focus. We were zoned in ready to go for the next day,” he says.

 Maintaining his focus before games includes three elements for White: listening to a preset playlist including hip and rap music, reviewing notes from film throughout the week, and prayer.

 White’s faith is an integral part of his life. Part of his bio on Twitter mentions the Bible verse “Philippians 4:13” which says “I can do all things through Him who strengthens me.”

“Being a faithful person and a religious guy, it just constantly reminds me that nothing is impossible as long as I know that I’ve got the Lord on my side,” he says.
