Billy Whitman Memorial Scholarship
The Billy Whitman Memorial Scholarship was endowed so that Coach Whitman’s legacy would live on through those Wylie High School student-athletes who receive the scholarship named in his honor.
The Billy Whitman Memorial Scholarship will help Wylie High School student-athletes, who desire to become teachers/coaches, defray some of their college expenses.
"Whit" was a 39-year football coaching veteran who was one of the finest and most respected coaches in the state of Texas.
He coached football with and against some of the greatest coaches in the state, finishing out his career as an assistant at McKinney High School, 1992-1999, and then as the offensive coordinator at Wylie High School from 2000-2005. Coach Whitman, most notably known as the ‘Ultimate Football Coach,’ is remembered for his offensive strategies, his way with kids and his love of life and the game.
This scholarship program has been established to remember Coach Whitman’s passion for kids and to allow his name to carry on his gift for many years to come. Each year one student from Wylie High School will receive a scholarship.
