2019 Inspiration Awards — Honoring Former Buckeye William White

“Everything starts with your attitude.” – William White

Faced with a devastating diagnosis, William White (’92) did not despair. He turned to his faith and his family, and he asked, “How can I help?” Though his body is growing weaker, White’s spirit is growing stronger, nourished by this chance to shine light on Ohio State’s medical research and the quest for a cure. (From The Ohio State Alumni Magazine, The Spirit Grows Strong, Todd Jones).

Join inTeam, Columbus, Buckeye Nation, and hundreds that William White has touched and inspired throughout his career in honoring William as an INSPIRATION!

There are many ways to describe William. Ask anyone who knows him and you’ll hear some version of the below.

A son of a pastor. A father of two. A committed husband. A loyal brother. An amazing friend. A collegiate football standout. An NFL starter of 132 games. An 11-year NFL veteran and Super Bowl starter. A Fellowship of Christian Athletes volunteer and board member. An OSU College of Engineering director. Joyful. Hopeful. A man with an amazing heart. Fighting ALS. Raising spirits. Winning hearts.
