Positively Promoting the Student Athlete Since 1992

SOUTH BEND, Ind. ā€“ Indiana University South Bend’s head baseball coach Doug Buysse announced Monday the hiring of new assistant coach Jackson White.
White, a native of Carmel, Ind., played at Cumberland University from 2013-18 for head coach Woody Hunt. During his time as a Phoenix, White was a member of the 2014 NAIA World Series team that went 49-20 during the year and became the lowest seed to ever claim the national title at No. 10. The championship was the third for the program since 2004.
Following his playing years, White moved into the graduate assistant role under Woody before coming back to his home state. A three-time varsity baseball letter winner, White played high school ball at Carmel High School.
As an assistant coach, White’s responsibilities gear towards the pitching staff but he will also bring a winning mentality along with a hard work ethic to the 2019-20 Titan baseball season.
White joins the Titans that went 13-38 overall with an 11-19 stint during Chicagoland Collegiate Athletic Conference play during the 2018-19 season, Buysse’s second season. For the first time in program history, a Titan was named CCAC Freshman of the Year in Colin Mack. The Wanatah, Ind. native finished with a .331 average going 60-for-179, including 13 doubles, one home run and 24 RBI. Junior Jordan Moore was named First Team All-CCAC with an impressive .443 average.
