Albert White grew up wrestling in the famed Harvey Twisters wrestling club in Harvey, Illinois. A high school wrestling legend and one of the nation’s top recruits coming out of high school, White had to go the junior college route before enrolling at Oklahoma State and wrestling for legendary coach John Smith in Stillwater. On Episode 693 of the Short Time Wrestling Podcast, White talks with host Jason Bryant about his path from Harvey to Iowa to Oklahoma to Arkansas, his relationship with Little Rock head coach Neil Erisman and all the things in between.
White overcame two potential career-ending injuries in college and his rehab was built around his relationship with Erisman, his new boss and former teammate. White talks about coming through and discovering wrestling, his heroes growing up and the icons from Harvey as well as becoming, as his mother says, “a true southerner.”
