MOBILE, Ala. ó Local hero Pat White passed for 95 yards and a touchdown and directed two scoring drives to lead the South to a 35-18 win over the North Saturday in the Senior Bowl, a showcase game for many of college football’s top prospects.
The West Virginia quarterback is a native of Daphne just outside Mobile. The most prolific running quarterback in major college football history, and projected to be a receiver in the NFL, White stood out among a group of high profile signal callers and was the most valuable player of the game that featured many top NFL prospects.
If there were doubts about the strength of White’s arm, he tried to erase them in the third quarter when he stretched the South’s lead with an impressive 39-yard scoring toss to Mississippi’s Mike Wallace in the corner of the end zone.
White showed what he could do early in the second quarter, leading an eight-play, 68-yard touchdown drive that ended with a 1-yard touchdown run by Quinn Johnson of LSU. The drive included a 33-yard pass from White to North Carolina State running back Andre Brown.
Then it was Clemson’s Cullen Harper’s turn behind center and he took the South 59 yards in eight plays, with Brown scoring on a 1-yard run with 3:35 to play in the half.
Alabama’s John Parker Wilson also played well, completing 7-of-13 passes for 56 yards and scoring on a four-yard scamper.
Wilson was named offensive player of the game, while Robert Ayers of Tennessee was named the game’s outstanding defensive player.
TRANQUILLBOSTON ó Boston College has named NFL and college coaching veteran Gary Tranquill its new offensive coordinator.
BC’s new head coach, Frank Spaziani, made the announcement Saturday. Tranquill replaces Steve Logan, who resigned after two years at BC.
Tranquill has worked under several big name coaches, including Bill Belichick, Nick Saban and Woody Hayes.
Tranquill has worked as the offensive coordinator at Virginia Tech, Michigan State, Virginia, and North Carolina.
Most recently, he served as quarterbacks coach for the Rhein Fire in NFL Europe in 2007.
