Rickey White

Teachers and Coaches take a big responsibility in raising our youth, Rickey White took that to heart for more than 3 decades at several schools in West Texas. While Coach White retired from Water Valley several years ago, he never stopped loving and supporting the kids. We lost Coach White on Thursday Night.
Teachers and Coaches take a big responsibility in raising our youth, Rickey White took that to heart for more than 3 decades at several schools in West Texas. While Coach White retired from Water Valley several years ago, he never stopped loving and supporting the kids. Thursday night we lost Coach Rickey White. In a 2007 interview where we tried to showcase his accomplishments, including being the MVP of the 1965 Football State Champion Permian Panthers, he was more interested in talking about the importance of making a connection with the kids. It was evident he loved his life and those in it.

Rickey White from 2007: "It is very special to me to watch a young man and a young lady grow up, see what they become. To have a person you coached 20 years ago come by and say, 'coach, how are you doing'. Spending time with the kids keeps me feeling young, I'm not young but it keeps me feeling young and it's very important that I spend time with kids."

Coach White, we'll miss you.
