The son of former LSU wide receiver Abram Booty, he comes from a prominent footballing family. His uncle Josh was a quarterback at LSU and a Major League Baseball player. Another uncle, John David, played quarterback at USC during the Pete Carroll era.
General Booty went to four different high schools when his family moved, including two in California and two in Texas, ending his career in Allen, Texas in the Dallas area.
He wasn’t heavily recruited out of high school and opted to play at the TJC, where he had a stellar season, throwing for 3,115 yards and 25 touchdowns to rank second in the nation in the NJCAA. In a game against Navarro last October, he threw for 528 yards and eight touchdowns and rushed for 62 yards on eight carries.
His family line and that name, which Abram Booty says was due to his fascination with the military, have long drawn attention to him.
“Obviously my name gets attention and people like to make headlines with it, but I like to show people with my play that I can back it up,” he told the Dallas Morning News in 2020. “I did that, I’m going to keep doing that too and give them a reason to remember my name.”
