To counter the rushing prowess of Mike Class, Emmaus will look for the hard hitting ball hawk cornerback, Kyzir White. White who is a punishing and highly instinctive cornerback will make it difficult for Mike Class to break the big play he is accustomed to. It will be a great match up to watch because both players are highly competitive and will be looked for by their teammates to make big plays.
2012 Stats: White caught 18 passes for 227 yards and two touchdowns. He averaged 12.6 yards per catch.
