Who is Clif White?
At Midlothian High School in Ellis County, Texas, Clif White was serving as the football team’s head coach. He had successfully represented the Midlothian high school and served as an inspiration for the entire community as well as a great teacher to the athletes, students.
Along with coaching his freshmen football team, Clif White also served as an assistant coach for the varsity team.
How did Clif die?
All of the professors, community members, and students gathered on Sunday evening to celebrate their coach’s birthday, but it was a sad day for Midlothian High School as he passed away in his sleep after a prolonged fight with cancer. Clif was only 37 years old at time of his death.
He was diagnosed with a rare form of bladder cancer in May 2022 and had already undergone a number of surgeries and chemotherapy treatments for it. In order to treat his stage 4 level cancer, also known as Urachal cancer, a diagnosis was given for him. However, the cancer has progressed to his lymph nodes, liver, and lungs.

Even though he was battling cancer, Clif’s participation as a football coach to the team was greatly valued because of his dedication to work and passion for students. The Midlothian faculty helped Cliff by paying for his medical expenses as a gesture of charity. Even though Clif had cancer, he came to the event location to encourage the team with a motorized wheelchair and oxygen. He was blessed with the two children and kind wife also.
Doug Wendel, the head football coach of the Midlothian team and a close friend, conveyed his heartfelt condolences to him by mentioning that he had worked for the institute for more than 12 years with dedication and affection, so it can’t be easy for him to abandon the team going forward. In addition, he said that his soul would roam the football field and campus.
Clif made those around him better. Didn't take knowing him long to see where his foundation was and to see his faith. No more suffering or pain, just true peace with our father. His heroic fight has inspired/challenged us all! Prayers for family and friends. #FightLikeCoachWhite— Eric Edwards (@E_Edwards49) October 16, 2022
