Ulish Booker (August 14, 1979) is an offensive tackle who last played in the NFL for the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Ulish began his football career in West Haven, Connecticut, playing for West Haven High School where he made the All-State team. He went on to play college football for Michigan State University, and he was signed as an undrafted free agent by the Atlanta Falcons. The Falcons cut Booker in 2003 before he played a single down in the NFL.

Booker would, however, eventually make his way back into the NFL on February 1, 2005, when he was signed by the Pittsburgh Steelers and allocated to NFL Europe where he played for the Amsterdam Admirals.

Ulish went on to become a starter with the Amsterdam Admirals, winning offensive MVP honors, and claiming victory in 2005 NFL Europe World Bowl XIII.

That same season, Booker returned to the Pittsburgh Steelers as a member of the practice squad of the team that won Super Bowl XL.

Booker added his name to a list of only five players to win World Bowl and Super Bowl rings in the same season.

On August 28, 2006 the Steelers placed Ulish Booker on the injured reserve list with a torn ACL.

Prior to playing in the NFL, the 6'7" and over 300-pound Booker was a substitute teacher in New Haven, Connecticut.

On April 1, 2008, Booker signed with the Toronto Argonauts of the Canadian Football League.

Ulish recently started First Foot Forward Family Solutions, a mentoring agency specializing in youth and families.[1]

He currently resides in New Haven, Connecticut, with his wife and two daughters.
