From the day Mason White showed up at Birmingham High as a 13-year-old freshman, coach Jim Rose has been predicting greatness. He couldn’t play varsity football in 2016 even though he was good enough because he wasn’t old enough. You have to be 14.

By his senior year, White fulfilled his destiny. He led Birmingham to the City Section Open Division championship as a receiver-defensive back. He finished with 16 blocks of punts, field goals or extra points in his three years on varsity.

He has been selected the Open Division City Section player of the year.

The Division I player of the year was quarterback Trent Butler of Reseda.
