What Does The Future Hold For The Greatest Mountaineer Of All Time, Pat White?

Chase RuttigCorrespondent IDecember 28, 2008

Quarterback Pat White of West Virginia just completed one of the most accomplished careers in collegiate football and set a record that likely will never be broken as he became the first person to start and win four bowl games as a quarterback.

But the shocking thing is that this big game quarterback likely will not be lining up under center in the pros, hell he might not even make a final NFL roster, but I am going to look into my magic crystal ball and predict what the future holds for Pat White.

White certainly has a bevy of options as to what he wants to do with the rest of his life.  He certainly has the weapons to play football in whatever league he wants (I assume it is the NFL) and he was drafted by the Los Angeles Angels in his freshman year so he can return to the diamond if that doesn't work out.

But what I see for Pat White is going to change the way football is played.  I see Pat joining the Miami Dolphins and receiving snaps in the vaunted "Wildcat" formation and adding another element to Miami's already unstoppable formation.

This would open up so many options he could run an option to either side, hand it off to Williams or Brown or use his cannon of an arm that he displayed yesterday to score in the air. I have goosebumps just talking about it.

Or teams can just go the route they usually do, pick a player, give him preseason snaps and use him sparingly as a wide receiver. NFL, the future of football runs through Pat White, are you listening?
