(Chickasha-AP) -- A bill in the state Senate would rename a section of State Highway 37 at Tuttle the "Jason White Passway" in honor of Oklahoma's Heisman Trophy winning quarterback.

Senator Daisy Lawler is offering the bill after talking to White and his family. Lawler says the section is between Mustang and Richland Roads and goes past the White family's home.

Ron White says the naming of a street for his son is great, but he finds the fuss a little overwhelming.

City officials in Tuttle have already painted Jason White's name on the water tower and hung banners and welcome signs for him.
