Vinny Booth is one of the best players from the Detroit, MI area in the Class of 2022.
The 6-foot-3, 200-pound Booth, who attends Divine Child, is a dynamic player that works as a quarterback.
Booth has earned plenty of recognition during his career, such as
- 2017 Scholar Athlete Award
- 2020 All League
- 2020 Varsity captain
Booth is humbled by the accolades.
“These awards mean a lot to me. I’m especially grateful to be voted by my teammates as a captain my junior season,” Booth said. “Having strong relationships and communication with my teammates is what it’s all about.”
No matter the opponent, every game Booth is determined to give it his all.
Booth is going all out.
The motor is always at full throttle whenever Booth steps between the lines.
“My mindset at the quarterback position is to give 110% in everything I do and to play with no regrets. The last thing that I want to do is walk off the field questioning myself if I gave all the effort I could,” Booth said. “Also my mindset is to be the best leader I can be through both the good and bad.”
Booth has great passion and energy whenever he’s on the field. Booth tells why he enjoys the game of football so much.
“I love the adrenaline that hits me before games,” Booth said. “Also I love the nerves building up all game day and then automatically disappearing after the first play.”
Booth has learned many valuable lessons from playing football that he applies to his everyday life.
“Playing football has taught me that things aren’t always going to go smoothly and the real challenge is how you’re going to bounce back,” Booth said. “In football we focus on ‘the next play,’ and I feel like this is a huge part of life.”
Booth shares his favorite football memories.
“My favorite memories are all of the early morning workouts in the summer,” Booth said. “Nothings better than competing with your team and working to get better while building lifelong relationships.”
Booth takes his role as one of the leaders on the team very seriously. Booth makes sure he’s a daily positive influence on his peers.
“As a captain I demonstrate being a good teammate by staying positive with my guys and to keep the team pumped up. I also demonstrate being a good teammate by showing love to the Scout Team guys, they are super valuable in preparation for our games,” Booth said. “The best advice I’ve given my teammates happened on senior night. It was our last home game as a team and I wanted to make sure that the team gave everything they had for our seniors because they’ve worked their butts off.”
Booth is appreciative of having amazing male role models that are supportive.
“I’ve learned from my coaches to always cherish great moments with the team. Also I’ve learned to embrace the grind,” Booth said. “The best advice I’ve gotten is that nothing in life is easy and sometimes you just have to love the grind.”
Booth patterns his mentality after this rising pro.
“I look up to Josh Allen because after being overlooked as a high schooler he played with a chip on his shoulder for his whole career to prove himself and his worth to a team,” Booth said.
Booth lists Environmental Science as his favorite subject in school.
“I love learning about ecosystems and environments all around the world,” Booth said. “Also my teacher does a great job of keeping things interesting.”
Booth explains his collegiate aspirations.
“My dream college is the University of Michigan because I’ve always been a fan and remember truly catching a love for the game after watching the Wolverines on TV,” Booth said.
Booth is striving for greatness in all that he does.
“My goals include being the best brother/son I can be, always being willing to offer help, being stellar in the classroom, making it to the collegiate level and playing football, and maintaining a positive attitude and strong work ethic,” Booth said.
