All-American: Jason White

Rufus Alexander

Jason White, QB - 2003
Jason White brought home Oklahoma's fourth Heisman Trophy in 2003 with a record-setting campaign. He became the first Sooner QB to win the trophy and was named Associated Press, Sporting News and College Player of the Year.

White was a consensus All-American, consensus Big 12 Offensive Player of the Year and Davey O'Brien Award winner along with Sports Illustrated and Sporting News Player of the Year honors.

White set Oklahoma school records for touchdown passes (40) and consecutive completions (16) and ranks No. 2 for passing yards in a season and No. 4 for passing yards in a career. He exceeded 200 passing yards in 12 games and was over 300 yards in four including a season-high 394 yards at Texas Tech.

White completed 17-of-21 passes in Oklahoma's 65-13 win over Texas and was 16-of-18 for 263 yards and five touchdowns while playing just the first half against Texas A&M. He ranked No. 1 in the nation in passing efficiency.

White's accomplishments stand alone but are even more amazing considering he battled back from two season-ending injuries. The NCAA granted White's request to return to OU for the 2004 season.
