Booty confirms he'll enroll at USC in fall

In a move that has been expected for the past few days, quarterback John David Booty from Evangel Christian HS has elected to bypass his senior season at the school and will enroll for the fall semester at USC. Click below for the statement from Booty:

"I will be leaving Evangel after the 2003 summer school session to attend the University of Southern California.

The chancellor has made a decision that has affected my family, and I am sorry that my dad and I cannot finish my senior year with my teammates.

I want to express my thanks to my Principal, Linda Bass, and to the entire administration and faculty. Playing for Coach Alexander, Coach Bachman, Coach Merry, Coaches Pat and Chris Tilley, and Coach Dunn has been the best!

The players mean more to me than I can ever say and winning two state championships with them will always be the highlights of my life!

And to the Evangel fans--I will always love you--Thanks for the memories!!!
