Hardships don't keep brothers off the fieldJosh White doesn't remember exactly when his mother left the family. He recalls life being better once she was gone. White remembers his father, William, as a rock. Last June, Josh was asleep when state troopers knocked on the door shortly after 2 a.m. His father had died in a car accident. In the months that followed, Josh, and his older brother, John White, turned to sports as an outlet.
