Two different states, three different high schools with three different classifications, four state tournaments. Jobee White hasn’t let being a coach’s daughter stop her. Despite the chaos of having a football coach for a father, Jobee is grateful to call her best friend, Dad.
“I get to make a lot of friends, but on the other hand, I don’t like leaving places, so that’s the hard part about it. It will for sure prepare me for college to make new friends and it’s easier now to make new friends and to talk to people, because I have to be outgoing because I moved so much,” says Jobee.
And this year, she also gets to call him, ‘Coach.’
“Sometimes it gets a little rough because just father and daughter, but I’m glad that he gets to be my last coach for high school, it’s pretty cool I think.”
After moving from Oklahoma to Texas, like most Texans would say, she likes Texas better, especially when it comes to playing tennis, “I think Texas is the best, because in Oklahoma I had to play 4A and down, and in Texas you just have to play 1A. In Oklahoma, there’s not that many schools, so that’s why its 4A and down, so it was way harder.”
Jobee is 26-2 on the year, only losing to two 4A schools. And she may be a four-time state qualifier, but she wants a shirt reading, “State Champion.”
