Introducing... Marvin Booker. Marvin is a fantastic Defensive End. You must check out his video footage to see what I mean. He makes exciting plays, is always on the tackle, and is known for roughing up the smooth plays and turning these into offensive disasters.
When he is around - there is trouble! A quarterback can't get a play off without a rush. For example, in 2017 he played for the CIF Bloomington Edge team for the last 6 games. During that time, he had 6 sacks and over 35 tackles. That's an average of 1 sack per game! Now that's action. That's what you pay for in a Defensive End. And it is the skill level you get every game from Marvin!

He then played for the CFL, was on injured reserves to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, he played 4 games with the FXFL - Brooklyn Bombers, and then played for the Champions Football League - Bloomington Edge.

He is known for his instinctual ability to disrupt the offense! And that is what he does!
Marvin also has the ability to move sideline to sideline as a Mike linebacker while using his leadership skills to direct the defense.

As Booker awaits an opportunity to perform at the highest level, he takes pride in keeping all his tools sharp. Taking on various jobs and opportunities that will not only keep money in his pocket but to also allow him to use various attributes of himself and to prepare for life after football; whether it be experience or networking.
