Some of the greatest sporting stories often start with setbacks and people who don't believe you can do the job. 

No matter what your stats are and how good your highlight reels are, playing football at the highest level requires a certain type of player, according to coaches like Nick Saban

A quarterback shouldn't be as short as 5ft 6inches that's for sure, but the game is changing and so are opinions. 

Desmon White, formerly of DeSotto High School, will next season be fighting for a starting place at TCU, and he is 5ft 6. 

In preparation for what is going to be a whirlwind season for him in 2014, White has opened a new Twitter account as he gets ready for the professional type of environment he will encounter.

Seattle Seahawks' QB Russell Wilson is the perfect example of how shorter signal callers can be effective. 

And who knows, Desmon White could well be the next version of him down the line somewhere. 

The former DeSoto High School QB finally got his shot at the big-time of College Football after 14 of his team-mates of his were offered scholarship before him. 

White has never been one to give up on his dreams, and he eventually got his call from TCU. 

“Everybody told me that I wasn’t going to be able to play quarterback because of my size,” White said. “My sophomore year (at DeSoto), I knew that I had the chance to play because every time they put me in the game, I made things happen, and I found a way to score touchdowns for my team."
