White has had workouts with six Major League teams: New York Mets, Atlanta, New York Yankees, Cleveland, Washington and St. Louis. The one area he’s impressed the scouts is the one area of his game where he’s always impressed — his speed.

A running back on the football team at P-O, he scored 14 touchdowns from 20 yards or longer and six touchdowns from 79 yards or longer. White ran a 6.4 in the 60-meter dash in an American Legion all-star tryout.

White has gotten faster since then. His first MLB workout was with the Mets, and he ran a 6.25 in the 60 there. He ran anywhere from 6.31 to 6.42 with the other five teams.

6 TDs from 79+ yards = thank your blockers. A semi-fast RB can score TDs from that distance if you get good blocking. That in and of itself doesn't indicate elite speed.

If you know high school football, those long runs are probably all the running back.
