Jeris Jerome White (born September 3, 1952) is a former professional American football cornerback in the National Football League (NFL) for nine seasons for the Miami Dolphins, Tampa Bay Buccaneers, and Washington Redskins. He played football at Radford High School, Honolulu, Hawaii, and at the University of Hawaii. He was drafted by Miami in the second round of the 1974 NFL Draft. He is the first person from a Hawaii high and collegiate school to ever play in a Super Bowl.[1] White was a holdout when the Redskins opened the 1983 season, so Washington replaced him with its first-round draft pick Darrell Green.
