MOBILE, Ala. (AP) -- Local hero Pat White passed for 95 yards and a touchdown and directed two scoring drives to lead the South to a 35-18 win over the North in the Senior Bowl Saturday night.
The West Virginia quarterback is a native of Daphne just outside Mobile. Projected to be a receiver in the NFL, White stood out among a group of high profile signal callers and was the most valuable player of the game that featured many top NFL prospects.
If there were doubts about the strength of White's arm, he tried to erase them in the third quarter when he stretched the South's lead with an impressive 39-yard scoring toss to Mississippi's Mike Wallace in the corner of the end zone.
Alabama quarterback John Parker Wilson and Ole Miss defensive lineman Peria Jerry also accounted for touchdowns Saturday night.
