SHARE INJURIES FORCE AGGIE QB TO CALL IT QUITS

Utah State quarterback Kevin White has announced he is giving up football following a series of injuries.

White who shared quarterbacking duties with Kirk Johnson in an injury-plagued season last year, re-injured his lower back in the first scrimmage of spring practice. After consulting with family and the USU coaching staff, he made the decision to quit."It's not the injury last week, it's a history of injuries that have been incapacitating," said Aggie coach, Chuck Shelton. "Through his injuries this week and in the past, he has been as courageous as any athlete I've ever coached. We will really miss him."

White went from Logan High to Snow College, where he led the Badgers to the national junior college title in 1985. He transferred to Utah State following an LDS mission.

The Aggie quarterbacking duties will be filled by Johnson, Craig Sorensen, a reserve last year, freshman Lex Stoehr and JC transfer Brad Fitzmaurice, who is sitting out this spring with an injury.
