‘Bird’ soars in FL

Nottoway RB shines at Bowl

A Nottoway High School student-athlete enjoyed his moment in the sun earlier this month.

The warm, Florida sun.

Devonte “Bird” Booth of Burkeville ran for 45 yards on five carries, made a pancake block, and even a tackle and helped lead the North to a 21-12 victory over the South in the Blue-Grey All-American Bowl.

The game was played Jan. 5th at the Tampa Bay Buccanneers’ Raymond James Stadium and was broadcast on ESPN 3. Booth says he greatly enjoyed the experience and is looking forward to receiving his All-American Championship ring.
