Marshall WR Booker undergoes name change

HUNTINGTON (AP) — Marshall football player Andre Booker has undergone a name change in a tribute to his grandfather.

Earlier this month before the start of preseason camp, he returned to his Sarasota, Fla., home to legally change his name to Andre Snipes-Booker.

His grandfather, Lee Otis Snipes, has been one of the primary male figures in the player’s life since birth.

The Charleston Daily Mail reports that the paperwork process started a year ago.

Snipes-Booker says whenever he returns home, his grandfather always checks on him to ensure he’s making the right decisions.
