Drew White Seeing Defense Swarm

August 31, 2020

Notre Dame linebacker Drew White spoke following an Irish practice with a Fighting Irish media team member. 

White, who tied for the team-lead with 80 tackles in 2019, has seen his defense continue to swarm to the football as August practice wraps up. 

"Our mentality is being aggressive," stated White. "We're flying to the ball. All 11 guys and all 11 hats swarming to the ball." 

Notre Dame has a chance to have a special defense as most of the front seven returns, including White and Rover Jeremiah Owusu-Koramoah. 

The linebacker corps is a veteran group and White believes the unit has taken upon themselves to make sure the defense is running smoothly. 

"We're coming out every day, whether it's individual drills working on our footwork or block destruction or coming out and bringing high energy in 7-on-7 or 11-on-11," said White. "We're just trying to get better every day." 

Notre Dame will start its 2020 campaign on Sept. 12 at home against Duke.
