There’s bulletin board material and then there are just great quotes from players about to play the biggest game of their lives. For Tampa Bay Buccaneers linebacker Devin White, we’re here to talk about the second of those two quote varieties.
During the first day of media availability, the second-year linebacker was asked about the potential of bringing his horse into Raymond James Stadium for a victory lap. To which he replied,
“If we get the W, I don’t care what they say, I’m pulling the horse out and I’m gonna hold the Lombardi Trophy and I’m gonna ride around.”
A full clip of the quote can be found through many sources on social media, including in this tweet from Grace Remington of WTSP in Tampa.
Devin White says if the Bucs win the Super Bowl, he's bringing his horse Dream to Ray Jay for a ride.— Grace Remington (@GraceRemiWTSP) February 2, 2021

White’s love of horses is well known to Bucs fans, but football fans less familiar with his time with the Bucs or as an LSU Tiger may not be as up to speed.
For further evidence of his affinity for horses, you need to look no further than the pinned tweet on White’s own account.
Unfortunately, Daisy Mae won’t be the horse riding around Raymond James Stadium if the Buccaneers can make it happen on Sunday. But riding ‘Dream’ would still be a moment White has been - well - dreaming of, as well.
In his first two career postseason games, White has recorded 26 combined tackles, one interception, and two fumble recoveries.
Pretty solid start for a playoff rookie who looks primed to go one-for-one in Super Bowl opportunities.
