Danielle White

Danielle White must undoubtedly be one of the premier athletes ever to play a game at Haddon Township, and there can be no such thing as a summary of her accomplishments or her impact. Whatever the sport, Danielle was a catalyst for success from helping to spark her track and field team to an 8-2 record her first year out for the sport as a senior, to capturing with her 2002 basketball team the South Jersey Group II Championships through her explosive play at guard, to demonstrating her value as a team leader in the 2000 soccer teams Group I State Championship, to, as a senior, tearfully gathering her teammates and joining hands to congratulate an Audubon rival for their last moment victory against the Hawks in the South Jersey Group II soccer play-offs. But more than simply a catalyst, Danielle was a star. In basketball, Coach Mulligan remarked, she could score both in and out of the perimeter and turned her fearless, aggressive play into 1100 points for her team during her four years of varsity competition. As a soccer player whose passion for the game was second to none, Danielle finished her career with 65 goals and 43 assists (both of these school records), leading the team to an overall record of 69-13-6. Coach Gess characterized Danielle as the ultimate competitor who would meet the biggest games with her best play. He also noted that her skills and composure in the box made her tough to defend. Her passion for the game that was second to none. Of herself Danielle once said that she liked to create things on the field of play, and Danielles teams all bore the stamp of her creative efforts, while her own accolades include many 1st team titles for the Colonial Conference, the Group, and even All State Group II soccer in 2002. Upon graduating Haddon Township, Danielle played Division I soccer at SUNY Binghamton, leaving her name next to many notable statistics, including a program high 82 games played, and a runner-up 24 goals scored. As in her time at Haddon Township, these records reveal Danielles tenacity and will traits for which she doesnt credit herself so much as she does her coaches and parents, yet traits for which all of us as coaches, spectators, and teammates have gratefully watched, learned from, and admired.
