Every so often a player jumps on the scene in a major moment to stamp his name in the history book. For Super Bowl LI that player was Florida native James White.

What a game for White. Two rushing TDs, 14 catches for 110 yards and a TD. How did we get to this point with White? Well we have to mention patience.

At St. Thomas Aquinas high school, White shared carries with current Cincinnati Bengals RB Giovani Bernard. White took his talents to Wisconsin, where throughout his entire career he shared the load with John Clay, Montee Ball and Melvin Gordon.

After a great career at Wisconsin, the Patriots drafted White in the 4th round.

And once again White would not be the premier back, joining LaGarret Blount and Dion Lewis this season. Being a veteran of patients and sharing, White finally came through for the Pats on the biggest stage.

We talked about how White’s patience as well as the knack the Patriots have of getting guys in the skills positions to step up in big moments on today’s FanRag Sports Network recap show.  Here I am addressing James White and how by waiting his turn, he showed up when his team needed him the most.
