He played collegiate football for the University of Tennessee. He received two awards for NFL Defensive Player of the Year.

The greatest defensive end to ever play the position is Reggie White. We will acknowledge his greatness in this retrospective of his career.

White’s Personal Life

Tennessee's Chattanooga is where White was born. He attended Howard School of Academics and Technology during his senior year of high school when he was given the opportunity to play for the Tennessee Volunteers.

White earned All-American accolades during his senior year at Howard High School, compiling 140 tackles and ten sacks. White, one of the state's best recruits, chose Tennessee University as his school.

 He participated in professional football for both USFL and NFL teams. He was a Christian as well. He had two children, Jeremy and Jecolia, with the former Sara Copeland, with whom he was married.

White was a defensive line rotational player as a rookie. He had a bigger impact in his second season, making 95 tackles and eight sacks, which was a team-high. The 1981 Garden State Bowl saw the Tennessee Volunteers defeat Wisconsin 28-21 to conclude their campaign.

White's junior season, hampered by a persistent ankle injury, saw him record 47 tackles and seven sacks. Despite the loss (28-22), White was outstanding in the Peach Bowl with eight tackles, two sacks, and a forced fumble.



His Career

the mark for the most career sacks, a game, or a season still belongs to Reggie White. He recorded 124 more sacks during his eight seasons with the Eagles than games played (121). With 68.5 sacks later, White became the Packers' all-time leader.

He held the title of Minister of Defense and was a two-time NFL Defensive Player of the Year winner, as well as a 13-time Pro Bowler and 10-time first-team All-Pro. White was chosen for the NFL 1980s All-Decade Team, the NFL 1990s All-Decade Team, and the NFL 75th Anniversary All-Time Team.

In 1996, White won the Super Bowl for the first time. On February 4, 2006, he was given a posthumous induction into the Pro Football Hall of Fame.

As the team's captain and defensive guru, Reggie White was regarded. He is regarded as having a strong commitment to the sport.

To Sports Illustrated, he said: "You are instructed to hit the ground on a double team in high school and college. You're expected to do it here. Every play, I am double-teamed, so I am used to it. Sacks are fantastic because they help you get selected for the Pro Bowl. However, I've always believed that a great defensive lineman must be equally adept at playing the run and the pass. The "guys of the game" take great satisfaction in being complete players."
