When junior linebacker Devin White walks out of the locker room after a game, his mom is always the first person to greet him.

And she is always the first person to critique how he played. 

"She's always been on me so hard," White said. "You don't want your mom telling you 'you did this bad' or 'you could've done this better.'"

However, White is thankful for any criticism from his biggest fan. 

"For a long time, it's been just me and her," White said. "She's always been the one who kind of guided me through sports."
