I am very pleased to have as my special guest Lorenzo White who has transitioned from a stellar career as a collegiate and NFL running back to running a very worthwhile foundation to help kids grow to adulthood with integrity an a future through sports. Lorenzo enjoys his new life by giving back to others.
Lorenzo is the most accomplished running back in the rich history of Michigan State Football. Ranking first in the school record books in rushing yards (4,887), rushing attempts (1,082), rushing touchdowns (43) and 100-yard games (23). The two-time All American (1985,1987) finished fourth in the Heisman Trophy balloting in both of those seasons. His 4,887 rushing yards ranked second in Big Ten history, following his departure from East Lansing and still ranks fifth in all time league history.
Lorenzo was inducted into the Michigan State Athletics Hall of Fame and he was also selected to play in the Pro Bowl in 2010. In 8 NFL seasons from 1988 to 1995, Lorenzo rushed for 4,249 yards with 30 touchdowns, averaging 4.0 yards per carry.
Lorenzo created The Lorenzo White Foundation to support organizations that champion the needs of children, their families and the community. Lorenzo is dedicated to getting kids off the streets, providing a wholesome learning environment and giving them tools for a life of meaning. By teaming together and reaching back into the community to pass along core values inherent in the game of sports.
