Aztec Football Announces 2013 Recruiting Class

Aztec Football announces 2013 recruiting class

At San Diego State:

  • Tony White joined the Aztec coaching staff in January 2009 and is in charge of the team's cornerbacks for the seventh straight season. In 2011, he also added duties as San Diego State's recruiting coordinator.
  • Under White's direction, San Diego State placed three defensive backs on the Mountain West all-conference team in 2014. Damonte Kazee (second team), J.J. Whitaker (second team) and Malik Smith (honorable mention). All three players return in 2015.
  • San Diego State intercepted 14 passes in 2014 which tied for 29th nationally.
  • In addition, the Aztecs ranked third last season in pass efficiency defense (112.1) and allowed just 10 touchdowns through the air (second among Mountain West schools).
  • Helped J.J. Whittaker receive all-Mountain West honorable mention accolades in his first year of collegiate play in 2013. Whittaker led the squad with 14 passes defended (3 interceptions, 11 pass breakups), which ranked fifth in the conference.
  • Under White's guidance, Leon McFadden became the fifth Aztec player in program history and the first since Kirk Morrison (2002- 04) to garner first-team all-conference accolades in three consecutive seasons. McFadden, who owns the SDSU career record with 39 passes defended, was a third-round draft pick of the Cleveland Browns in the 2013 NFL Draft after setting career highs with 61 tackles and three interceptions, including two for touchdowns, during his senior campaign in 2012.
  • In 2011, both of the team's starting cornerbacks, McFadden and senior Larry Parker, earned first-team all-league honors. Parker, who was also tabbed an honorable mention All-American by SI.com, led the Mountain West in interceptions with seven to tie for fourth nationally in his first campaign as a starter. His seven picks were the most by an Aztec since 1969, and are tied for third in program history.
  • Helped the Aztec defense improve substantially in the national rankings in 2010, climbing from 62nd to 10th in pass efficiency defense (113.4) and from 53rd to 39th in pass defense (205.0 ypg.). SDSU allowed less than 200 yards through the air in eight of 13 contests.
  • In 2010, he tutored McFadden to his initial first-team all-conference accolade, while the team's other starting corner, senior Jose Perez, received honorable mention all-league recognition. The pair both ranked in the top five in the MW in passes defended.
  • In 2009, SDSU surrendered only 15 passing touchdowns, including four in non-conference action, after giving up 21 TDs in 2008. Opponents scored one passing touchdown or fewer in eight of 12 contests.

Previous Experience:

  • Came to San Diego State after spending 2008 alongside current Aztec head coach Rocky Long at New Mexico. White was in charge of the Lobos' linebackers.
  • At UNM, coached two honorable mention all-conference linebackers in (current SDSU assistant coach) Zach Arnett and Herbert Felder. New Mexico ended 2008 ranked 26th nationally in rushing defense, 45th nationally in total defense and 46th nationally in scoring defense.
  • Before moving to Albuquerque, served as the graduate assistant in football operations at UCLA in 2007. White assisted with the dayto- day operations and administration, recruiting administration and provided professional scouts with player information and videos.
  • In 2006, was the head football coach at St. Genevieve High School in Panorama City, Calif., where he led the team to its best record in 13 seasons and coached two first-team all-CIF selections.

Playing Experience:

  • Was a three-year starter and four-year letterman at outside linebacker for Bob Toledo at UCLA from 1997-2000.
  • Served as a team captain during his senior campaign in 2000, making 64 tackles and earning the team's N.N. Sugarman Award for Best Leadership.
  • Spent four seasons playing in the Canadian Football League for the Calgary Stampeders, Ottawa Renegades and Hamilton Tiger- Cats.

Education:

  • Received his bachelor's degree in history from UCLA in 2002.

Personal:

  • White and his wife, Angela, have a son, Anthony III.
