2023’s Titus White has an uncanny knack for snagging tough receptions

Titus White is one of the best players from the Plano, TX area in the Class of 2023.  

 

The 6-foot-2, 199-pound White, who attends Prestonwood Christian Academy, is a dynamic player that works as a wide receiver. 

 

 

White has earned plenty of recognition during his career, such as: Nextgen participant, two invites to The Show, and FBU Top Gun 2020 invite. 

White is humbled by the accolades. 

“It’s very honoring because I get to compete with the best from all around the country and show up and show out,” White said. “I did not get to attend The Show for 2019 but I will be in attendance for the 2020 Show.”

White participated in a camp hosted by national championship coach Ed Orgeron. 

“I did get to attend one of the best clinics with Coach O, also known as Coach O for opportunity, where he gives everyone an opportunity to play at the next level and compete with each other,” White said. 

White has also participated in these camps: TCU skills camp, Nextgen, FBU, TX Air Assault camp, SMU skills camp and D Rob WR Skills camp. 

"My experience has been incredible to train with the top WR coach in the country, D Rob," White said. "I'm also training and conditioning with Michael Johnson performance."

Last season, White amassed 11 touchdowns and over 500 receiving yards. 

No matter the opponent, every game White is determined to give it his all. 

 

White is going all out. 

 

The motor is always at full throttle whenever White steps between the lines.

 

“My mindset is I’m taking everything that’s on your plate,” White said. “Whether you're a five star, no star, 3 star athlete, or no star athlete I am going to beat you every single time until you quit.”

 

White has great passion and energy whenever he’s on the field. White tells why he enjoys the game of football so much. 

 

“I love to get to compete with another team, and watch crazy things happen from big hits to game winning touchdowns to any type of big play that shifts the game to make us fight harder,” White said. 

 

White has learned many valuable lessons from playing football that he applies to his everyday life. 

 

“Football has made me a better person because I love to compete and it has taught me to not take life for granted because blessings can get taken away at any moment in time,” White said. 

 

White shares his favorite memory of playing football.

 

“Playing against our rival school Trinity Christian Academy in 8th grade for the last game of the season and keeping an undefeated record for 2 years straight,” White said. 

 

White takes his role as one of the leaders on the team very seriously. White makes sure he’s a daily positive influence on his peers.

 

“I demonstrate being a good teammate by lifting them up and playing any position that my teammates need me in a specific moment without being selfish so I can get the job done,” White said. “The best advice I give is to not walk into any stadium fearing an opponent but knowing we can kill if we play the best we can.”

 

White is appreciative of having amazing male role models that are supportive.

 

“I’ve learned to never give up when facing adversity. What you do when you’re not playing football demonstrates your character,” White said. “Never quit when times get difficult.”

 

White patterns his mentality after these talented athletes. 

“I look up to Julio Jones, DK Metcalf, and OBJ,” White said. “I try to model after these players because they are physical receivers who can fight for 50-50 balls, but also can block for teammates and run precise routes which I think reflects my game pretty well.”

White lists science as his favorite subject in school. 

 

“I love the study of life and that’s what I plan to study in college, to become a physical trainer or coach so I can help the youth,” White said. 

 

White explains his collegiate aspirations. 

 

“I’d like to hear from every Power 5 school before I graduate, but I really like OU, TCU, and SMU,” White said. “Staying close to home is priority, but also playing for my culture, so a couple HBCU’S would definitely be on my list.”

 

White maintains a rigorous schedule to stay sharp.

“I like to use cones to turn into game-like situations,” White said. “I also like the agility ladder to work on footwork.”

 

White is striving for greatness in all that he does. 

 

“My goal for high school is to graduate with a 3.4 gpa so I can pursue a good life after football and have an after plan,” White said. “I’m also working to break a couple school records for most receiving yards, touchdowns in a game, etc.”

 

White describes what he believes separates himself from the pack. 

 

“My size, speed and strength. I can catch any 50-50 ball, burst off the line of scrimmage, and make big plays for my team,” White said. “I also can make huge blocks using my size so that my teammates can score as well. I am not a selfish player which really demonstrates my character.”
