National Football Foundation College Hall of Fame (1980)
Randy White changed the look of football’s defensive lines. At Maryland, and later in an All-Pro National Football League career with the Dallas Cowboys, he was regarded as the quickest defensive lineman to play the game. He could be in an opponent’s backfield before a quarterback could make a hand-off.
In 1974, White cleaned up the college football awards plate. He was honored with the Outland and Lombardi trophies as the top collegiate lineman, was ACC Player of the Year, was an unanimous first-team All-America choice, named the Delaware (his home state) Athlete of the Year and named the Amateur Athlete of the Year by the Philadelphia Sportswriters Association.
A first round draft choice of the Dallas Cowboys, White was an All-Pro performer throughout his career and shared Super Bowl MVP honors with Dallas teammate Harvey Martin when the Cowboys defeated Denver in Super Bowl XII.
White’s jersey number, 94, has been retired at Maryland. He was inducted into the National Football Foundation College Hall of Fame and the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 1994.
