High School Football Legend Lorenzo Booker Ready to Make a Splash in Miami

I am not sure everyone remembers when Lorenzo Booker was a high school football player at St. Bonaventure High School Ventura California. He was so good that he was invited to make his college decision live on ESPN. Obviously his college career did not meet the huge expectations, but he played pretty well when given the opportunity at Florida State, averaging 4.8 yards per rush and 8.1 yards per reception.

Lorenzo Booker knows what it takes to be a great football player. He is a focused and dedicated football player. In a recent interview Booker said, “I knew that the town was going to be serious about playing football, and I am. That’s why I traveled so far to play at Florida State because I wanted to be around people that took it serious like me, so I’m excited.” He is also pretty pumped about playing in the Dolphins offense.

Despite growing up as somewhat of a superstar he is relatively humble. He is excited about being able to take care of his mother financially for the rest of her life because he is so grateful for how she took care of him. On the field he wants to prove he belongs in the NFL and overall just wants to help his team in any way he can.

Members of the Dolphins organization think that he will help this team. Starting running back Ronnie Brown predicts that Booker will make an impact for Miami right away. Booker is not discouraged at all knowing that he was brought in as a back up to Brown. Booker is actually somewhat excited about that role because he feels that he can do so much on the football field that if he just ran the ball he wouldn’t be helping his team as much as he could. Head coach Cam Cameron says they’ll find a way to use his talent, “It could be a punt returner, it could be a kick returner, it could be a third down back.” Booker has the potential to be a great 3rd down back and could also be very dangerous catching passes or returning kicks. Anytime this guy has the ball in his hands it could be dangerous for the opposition.
