During the 2010-11 season, he led the team in all offensive categories and earned a spot on the All-SUNY Athletic Conference First Team and All-America East Second Team.
From 2008 to 2010, Boots played for The Ohio State University, recording a two-season total of 29 points in 50 appearances.
Boots also played a season of junior level hockey in the Canadian Junior Hockey League between the Cornwall Colts and Brockville Braves for a total of 54 games.
