Reginald Howard "Reggie" White (December 19, 1961 – December 26, 2004) was a professional American football player who played defensive end for 17 seasons in the National Football League for the Philadelphia Eagles, Green Bay Packers and Carolina Panthers becoming one of the most decorated players in NFL history. The 2-time NFL Defensive Player of the Year, 13-time Pro Bowl and 12-time All-Pro selection holds 2nd place all-time amongst career sack leaders with 198.5 (behind Bruce Smith's 200 career sacks) and was selected to the NFL 75th Anniversary All-Time Team, NFL 1990s All-Decade Team and the NFL 1980s All-Decade Team. During his professional career, he became famous not only for his outstanding play, but also for his Christian ministry as an ordained Evangelical minister. This led to his nickname, "the Minister of Defense."

White was born in Chattanooga, Tennessee. He attended Howard School of Academics and Technology during high school, and from there was recruited to play for the Tennessee Volunteers. As a professional player, he played with both USFL and NFL teams.

He was married to the former Sara Copeland, with whom he had two children, Jeremy and Jecolia. Reggie White was enshrined in the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 2006, two years after his death.
