As the Pendleton County High School Class of 2018 spends their last weeks of high school, many are wondering and transitioning to their next stage of live. Most will be leaving home to venture out in the world to make their mark.

For Ethan White, he will just be trading one home for another as he has signed to continue his football career at Campbellsville University.

“I went down there for several visits and it just felt like home,” he said. “I’m very blessed to have this opportunity, I thank God, my family, my friends and my coaches.”

The Tigers finished 8-2 this past season and was 4-2 in the Mid-South Conference. They beat Southwestern Assemblies of God University, 41-28, to clinch the second NCCAA Victory Bowl Championship in the program’s history.

Perry Thomas is the Head Coach but it was Wide Receivers coach Matt Atwood who recruited White.

He pointed out that their program is more than just on the field. “Build men of character, earn your degree and win the national title.”

The business and psychology major was recruited to play tight end and long snapper.

“The coaching staff told me if I go down there and put the work in during the off season, I will get the opportunity to ride the bus and play.”

A semtiment Coach Atwood echoes. “He’s already a very solid long snapper already coming out of high school. We hope to get him here and really push him in the weight room and on the field to become a dependable tight end for us as well.”
