Brian white is one of four players in the country playing division one basketball listed at 5’6″.
NSU head coach Mike McConathy said, “I’ve always felt like smaller guards are as big a struggle matchup wise as big guards or big men because people have to guard down.”
Brian White said, “I can get so low to the ground they cant really get that low. I’m a lot quicker than a lot of the taller guys.”
The Natchitoches native has been looked up to in the community for years.
In his time at Natchitoches Central High School he became the winningest player in school history.
Natchitoches Central head coach Micah Coleman said, “You know I’ve been proud to be associated with Brian White and to say that I was able to coach him for four years but I can’t take credit for all of those things. Those things were just naturally in him.”
White has played in five games this season having missed time due to a sprained ankle.
He’s now back on the active roster and his mission is to make an impact as a leader.
White said, “At my size they probably tell you that there’s people that aren’t going to listen to me but if you lead the right way you can get anybody to listen to you. You got to lead by example sometimes to so I try to do that a lot in my game.”
His game will continue to inspire many.
McConathy said, “Whatever the good lord’s given us you can just take it and use it to the best of our ability and I think that’s what he’s doing.”
Safe to say for Brian his size has never been a Demon.
