North Webster running back Devin White soaked in an ice bath following a bruising 389-yard rushing performance in a 51-47 quarterfinals comeback against Patterson.
White, who is also one of the top prospects being courted by LSU and Alabama among others, probably doesn’t have a hard time finding dates, especially after a huge game with historical significance.
Now he and offensive lineman Dallas Lay have a date. White promised Lay before the season that if he ever rushed for more than 350 yards, he’d take Lay out to Outback Steakhouse.
“I didn’t realize I had that many yards until (Lay) came up to me after the game and said, ‘Man, you owe me Outback,’” White said. “He said, ‘Man, you rushed for over 350 yards for real.’
“I told them that whenever he could drive us over there, we’d go. We’ll wait until after the season because we have business to finish.”
That unfinished business comes in the form of a Class 3A semifinals trip to No. 3 Amite (11-2) on Friday. Amite eliminated North Webster in the quarterfinals in 2013 with a 34-19 win.
White, who stands at 6-feet, 253 pounds, is preparing for a physical Amite defense by taking daily ice baths after practice and soaking in Epsom salt.
He’s earned it after rushing for a combined 799 yards and 10 rushing touchdowns in three playoff games – the first two against No. 18 Marksville (49-18 win) and No. 2 Church Point (21-16 win).
