Whereas, after high school, he attended the University of Alabama at Birmingham and played wide receiver for its football team, eventually leading the Blazers to their first bowl game appearance, a spot in the 2004 Hawaii Bowl; and

Whereas, White’s success as a college football player led to his being drafted by the Atlanta Falcons as the 27th overall pick in the 2005 NFL draft. In his first season in the NFL, he ranked fourth among all rookie receivers, and by the 2007 season, White tied for eighth place among NFL wide receivers in receiving yards with 1,202 yards; and

Whereas, in 2008, he finished fourth in the NFL in receiving yards with a career‑high 1,382, also breaking a team record held since 1981. In addition, White amassed eighty‑eight receptions and seven touchdowns during that season, both career highs. On December 16, 2008, White was named to the 2009 Pro Bowl. White set the single‑season record in receiving for the Falcons in 2010 and the team’s single‑game record in a half and in a game. In 2011, his one hundred fifteen catches led the NFL for the season; and

Whereas, a member of Payne Methodist Church, White is the proud father of three fine children, and he sponsors two outstanding charities, Roddy White Keep the Faith Foundation and Stop the Violence South; and Whereas, in order to shape communities the Roddy White Keep the Faith Foundation identifies, promotes, and supports
Whereas, the members of the South Carolina House of Representatives appreciate the outstanding work that Roddy White provides through the Roddy White Keep the Faith Foundation and Stop the Violence South, and are grateful for the South Carolina All Star Weekend Hosted by Stop the Violence South and Keep the Faith Foundation with Roddy White, that he is bringing to Charleston from June 8 through June 10, 2012.  Now, therefore,

Be it resolved by the House of Representatives:

That the members of the South Carolina House of Representatives, by this resolution, recognize and honor Sharod Lamor “Roddy” White on his extraordinary athletic achievements, and to commend his successful efforts toward improving society through the Roddy White Keep the Faith Foundation and Stop the Violence South.

Be it further resolved that a copy of this resolution be presented to Roddy White.
