Abram was picked in the 2001 NFL draft by the Cleveland Browns.
His uncle Josh Booty was picked No. 5 overall in the 1994 MLB draft by the Marlins and No. 177 by the Seattle Seahawks in the 2001 NFL draft.
Of course, his youngest uncle John David was a Minnesota Vikings player as well.
General Booty, the king of unusual names
Having a unique name can make certain players legends of their sports, and General Booty doesn’t want to be known solely for his name.
Just before he joined Tyler Junior College, General commented on his unusual name.
“Obviously my name’s an attention-grabber and people like to do headlines with it, but I like to show people with my play that I can back it up, too,” General Booty said, “I have done that, I’m going to continue to do that as well, and give them a reason to remember my name.”
During his time at Tyler, he threw for 3,410 yards resulting in 27 touchdowns and led them to a 7-5 record before departing for Oklahoma.
The plan for his parents was to call him by his middle name Axel, but he only ever acknowledged anyone when he was called General and it stuck.
General has certainly established himself as possibly the most famous Booty in a family full of high-achieving football stars.
