Jason White (2003, 2004)

In 2003, Jason White was named the Associated Press, Sporting News and CNNSI.com College Player of the Year. He capped his return from two serious knee injuries by becoming the nation’s top-rated passer while leading the Oklahoma Sooners to an undefeated regular season and a berth in the National Championship.

In addition to the O’Brien Award, White received the Heisman Memorial Trophy, Jim Thorpe Courage Award, and was named a member of the Walter Camp All-America Team and Big 12 Player of the Year. In 2004 White again led the Sooners to an undefeated regular season, a Big 12 Conference Championship and a berth in the National Championship. During his senior season, White became Oklahoma’s all-time leader in career passing with a total of 7,768 yards and 79 touchdowns.

He received both the O’Brien and Maxwell Awards and was a finalist for the Heisman Memorial Trophy. He is one of just three players ever to win the Davey O’Brien Award twice, joining Danny Wuerffel (1995-96) and Ty Detmer (1990-91).
