After a distinguished coaching career that has spanned more than 40 years, Broadneck's Clay White has announced he will retire following the current school year. White, 66, the boys lacrosse coach and a physical education teacher at Broadneck, emailed coaching colleagues on Monday to let them know of his decision. Broadneck athletic director Ken Kazmarek announced White's pending retirement from coaching and teaching in a press release on Tuesday afternoon. "Clay White's departure marks the end of an era at Broadneck. His record as our lacrosse coach speaks for itself, but it will be his lasting impact on our student-athletes that will be most missed," Kazmarek said in the release. "Mr. White was more than a coach to our athletes. He was a mentor, a confidant and friend. His special relationship with student-athletes was the cornerstone to his coaching." White, a Pasadena resident, graduated from Severna Park High School in 1970 and was a part of the 1970 team that finished undefeated. White, who has been at Broadneck the last 32 years, began his coaching career leading the Severna Park junior varsity in 1976. He was also an assistant coach at Meade for two years and head coach at Southern for four years before taking the job at Broadneck. "It has been a privilege, honor and dream to teach here for 19 years and coach for 33 years," White said. "I owe everything to all our principals, athletic directors, coaching staff and peers who have supported me all these years. Broadneck has always been about what is best for the students and community." White, who's won more than 450 games in his career, has had just one losing season in his 32 years at Broadneck. He also served as coach of the Unified bowling program for several years.
