White would love chance to be a Steeler
By Dave Morrison
Ask any ordinary prospective NFL draftee and he will tell you he doesn’t care which of the 32 NFL franchises picks him in April’s NFL draft.
As West Virginia fans know, Mountaineer quarterback Patrick White is no ordinary player.
So when White was asked Sunday at the Mountain State Coal Classic Tip-Off Banquet, of which he and WVU coach Bill Stewart were the keynote speakers, which, if any, NFL teams he might like to be drafted by, he had a refreshing response.
“Pittsburgh,” White said. “I grew up a Steelers fan. You didn’t come in my Pops’ house if you weren’t a Steelers fan.”
“And,” added Stewart, seated next to White at the pre-banquet press conference, “we’d love to keep him right here close to home.”
