Former LSU QBs Ryan Perriloux and Josh Booty to Compete on Reality TV Show!
A couple of former LSU quarterbacks, and a former Evangel/USC standout are set to compete on the MLB Networks first ever reality show.
Former Evangel/LSU/Florida Marlins/Cleveland Browns strong-arm Josh Booty, and his brother, former Evangel/USC quarterback John David Booty, along with former LSU
knucklehead quarterback Ryan Perriloux will compete to be "The Next Knuckler."
"The Next Knuckler" is the MLB Networks first ever reality tv show. Former athletes will vie to see who can learn and throw the best knuckle ball to win an invitation to the Arizona Diamondbacks' spring training camp.
This all sounds like a joke, right? It's not! The MLB network has also recruited former College and NFL star Doug Flutie to compete, as well as former Georgia QB David Greene.
The show will be hosted by baseball analyst Kevin Millar and former All-Star knuckle-baller Tim Wakefield. The show premiers Wednesday Feb. 13th at 8pm on the MLB Network.
Josh Booty played pro baseball in the Florida Marlins organization after graduating Evangel before giving it up to play football at LSU in 1999. Perriloux played high school baseball at East St. John before his time at LSU.
