EAST CENTRAL -- Anytime a high school athlete gets recognition from outside his family, there’s a positive reinforcement, but when a high school graduating senior varsity basketball player is offered a scholarship to play for a college that was “the one” that young man was dreaming about, it’s a very exciting time in the athlete’s life.

Evan White, one of East Central’s 2012 graduates and top scoring varsity basketball players, signed with Lamar State College-Port Arthur June 11, while proud family, coaches, teachers, and friends watched and cheered.

Hornet Head Basketball Coach Jeff Sweet explained that White was a three-year varsity letterman, and since he had been varsity since his sophomore year with an exceptional East Central team, he was able to clock quality time and wins with a 5A school. A junior-year highlight was a game against Sam Houston where White scored 21 points and 9 rebounds, but also experienced an injury in the last three minutes of the game, which caused him to miss the last half of the season. His lack of action that year had no negative influence on his year as a senior leader, and White was “top scorer” most games, averaging 25 points on any given night. He had his best game in Corpus Christi, where the schools were tied for district. White hit five 3-pointers in the second half, with a game total of 27 points and 9 rebounds.

White was chosen as a San Antonio Express-News Player of the Week, he was chosen for First Team All-Tournament, and he was chosen for First Team All-District.

Lamar Head Basketball Coach Lance Madison and Assistant Coach Chad Kish emphasized how excited they are to get White to play for the Seahawks. Madison related his praise for White’s being a “quality person” who fits Lamar’s mission statement with high academic and athletic goals. Madison stated that White is a “good shooter and a good team-man.” He explained that White is the first player to sign for Lamar this season. When he went to Lamar for his official visit and met with the school committee and Lamar’s athletic director, as soon as he left, all attendees had high compliments for the young man. There is also the feeling that White will be an outstanding ambassador for the school’s community-outreach program.

White will begin his college career with the regular fall semester.

Dr. Raye Lynn White, Evan’s mom and also one of East Central’s vice principals, said, “I am so proud of my baby!” Her sentiment probably rings in the minds of most moms who are watching their sons begin the next leg of the journey to adulthood as they leave for college. It’s just that this mom can say White is receiving a blessing in that Lamar is where he wanted to go. At first it seemed that it wasn’t a possibility, and now, just look toward the future.
