Danial White, the starting quarterback on two Ashland Pop Warner state championship teams, was selected to join the region's other top youth signal callers at the DeBartolo Fab 50 Camp, Aug. 1-2 at Los Angeles, Calif.
White will compete against other quarterbacks in one-on-one drills, seven-on-seven games and other position specific competitions. Afterward, the camp will name the top 50 football players in each region, a list which will be featured on ESPN.com.

White is the son of Greg and Llona White. Greg White is a former Ashland High quarterback.
