Pike Liberal Arts quarterback Mayes White has been named a finalist for the Alabama Sports Writers Association AISA Back of the Year Award. White helped lead the Patriots to their third state championship this season and earlier this week he found out he was a finalist for the AISA State Player of the Year Award.

White is one of three finalists up for the award joining Chambers Academy’s Payton Allen and Escambia Academy’s Landon Sims.
