(Carlisle, Pa.) – Dickinson men's lacrosse assistant Tyler White '15 will be leaving the program after accepting a position at the Baylor School in Chattanooga, Tennessee. White returned to his alma mater and spent the past two seasons on the Red Devil sideline, helping lead the Red Devils to a Centennial Conference Championship in 2018.
White enjoyed an outstanding playing career during his time at Dickinson. The Red Devils captured back-to-back Centennial Conference Championships in 2012 and 2013, winning the regular season title in 2013 as well. The Red Devils earned bids to the conference playoffs all four years of his career and made NCAA Tournament appearances in 2012 and 2013, posting an overall record of 18-1 in 2013.
White was part of some of the most successful teams in program history. The team set school records with 18 wins in 2013 and went undefeated in conference play for the second time in three seasons. They added school marks for goals (254), assists (145) and points (399) in a season in 2013, and allowed the fewest goals in a CC final, defeating Franklin & Marshall, 16-2. White was a four-year starter for the Red Devils. He tallied 59 goals and handed out 11 assists during his career and received the Class of 2006 Unsung Hero Award in 2015.
White earned a degree in political science from Dickinson in 2015. He was inducted into the Raven's Claw Senior Honorary Society and was a member of the Student Athlete Advisory Committee. Following graduation, he spent two years working in sales. He was an analyst in the Healthcare Division at The Prestige Group and served as a marketing automation recruitment consultant for the Frank Recruitment Group, both based in Philadelphia.
In 2018, he helped lead the Red Devils to the program's fourth Centennial Conference Championship and to the NCAA Quarterfinals, finishing 17-4 on the season. The team produced 10 All-Conference selections, eight All-Americans and six All-Region honors.
The Red Devils put together a strong finish to earn a spot in the conference semifinals again in 2019 as six players were named All-Conference and five were selected to the All-America Team. Senior Nate Usich '19 was the Defensive Player of the Year in the conference and named the national Division III Long Stick Midfielder of the Year by the USILA. White becomes the first in program history to win a Centennial Conference title as both a player and assistant coach.
In addition to his playing experience, White spent two years coaching a pair of youth lacrosse programs in West Chester, Pa., working with the NXT Lacrosse and BlackBear Lacrosse Clubs.
