GIANO WHITE | Free Agent (Last Played: GFL) | LB/RB | 5110 | 220 | Moreno Valley, CA 

Overview: A hybrid running back/linebacker prospect, White is known for his high motor, toughness, strength and athleticism. As a runner, he demonstrates strong lower body strength, constantly keeping his legs churning upon contact and constantly fighting for extra yards. At 5-foot-11 and 220-pounds, White owns the frame and bulk to keep pound the rock between the tackles and shows excellent vision waiting for his holes to develop. As a linebacker, he owns the upper body strength needed to disengage/shed oncoming blockers and understands angles. White continues to train and workout in order to improve his peed/quickness. A smart, well-traveled player who has handled plenty of adversity both on and off the field, White has the versatility to make an impact in several areas including all three phases of the game (offense/defense/special teams).
