Josh Booty's high school career was legendary. He was the first high school player to throw for 10,000 career yards which includes 126 touchdowns. His 12,105 total career yards (11,700 passing yards and 405 rushing yards) ranks eighth all time.
He was so good at baseball he was drafted by the Florida Marlins (fifth overall 1994). In five minor league seasons he clubbed 62 home runs and drove in 252. Booty played 13 major league games over the course of three years (96-99).
Once his minor league baseball career was finished, he enrolled at LSU and became their starting quarterback from 1999-2000. In two years he threw for 24 touchdowns and nearly 4,000 yards (3,951). Booty was drafted in 2001 by the Seattle Seahawks and later traded to the Cleveland Browns where he spent three years as a backup.
