His time in the LSU secondary may be done, but Tre'Davious White is keeping busy ahead of his upcoming NFL ambitions.

The Shreveport native joined fellow Walter Camp All-Americans on a journey to Gaylord Hospital in Connecticut to meet with patients at the long-term care facility, according to a report from the Meriden Record Journal.


“It’s humbling. It just shows you that you are in a blessed position," said White to a reporter for the Record-Journal. "I am in a blessed position and anytime I can reach out and go into the community I look at it as a positive thing, I look at it as a way for me to learn, too.”

White was joined on his visit by Michigan's Jourdan Lewis, as well as Donald Brown, who's played seven years in the NFL split between the Indianapolis Colts, San Diego Chargers and New England Patriots. The trio spoke with several patients at the facility, posed for pictures and signed autographs. 

“A lot of guys love football, that are passionate about the game of football that weren’t able to play at a young age," White said. " ... Anytime you can get in here and have conversations with them it could make their day, you never know.” 

White, who has declared for the NFL draft, wrote a heartfelt letter in December, thanking LSU fans for their support. He didn't find quite as much love in frigid New England, however. 

“Not at a lot fans of the SEC up here," he said, jokingly.
