Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Dwight Lynn White (July 30, 1949-June 6, 2008) was an American football defensive end who played for ten seasons with the Pittsburgh Steelers in the National Football League (NFL) and was a member of the famed Steel Curtain defense. Born in Hampton, Virginia, White graduated from James Madison High School in Dallas, Texas and played college football at East Texas State University (since renamed Texas A&M University-Commerce). Nicknamed "Mad Dog," because of his intensity, White became a two-time Pro Bowl defensive end. White spent much of the week leading up to Super Bowl IX in a hospital, suffering from pneumonia; he lost 20 pounds and was not expected to play in the game. However, he did play, and accounted for the only scoring in the first half when he sacked Fran Tarkenton in the end zone for a safety - the first points in Steelers' history in a championship game. The Steelers defeated the Minnesota Vikings 16-6.show more
