John White is a former Ballard High Standout in Louisville Kentucky. He also attended University of Southern Mississippi where he helped lead the Golden Eagles to an NIT Championship victory.

John spent 14 seasons playing professionally in Europe.

John has played at the highest level in Europe and was the leading scorer for the league while playing in England, France, Cyprus, Austria, Venezuela and Finland. His dynamic leadership on and off of the court earned him a plethora of accolades and awards in several of the countries he played in. Mr. White is known as "the man to get the ball to in the clutch". His skillful ability to create shots from anywhere on the court earned him the "MVP" title on most of the teams he played. His passion for the game of basketball coupled with his experience has earned him several coaching positions since his tenure . It comes as no surprise that , during his first year of coaching a semi-pro team, that John would snag a championship title.

His shot precision technique is sought after by many who encounter him. He is no amateur by any stretch of the imagination.
