For their own good
Fifty years ago, they were screwed-up kids sent to the Florida School for Boys to be straightened out. But now they are screwed-up men, scarred by the whippings they endured. Read the story and see a video and portrait gallery.

FSU scrambles to solve DL issues
By IAN FISHER
Published September 15, 2006
TALLAHASSEE - Andre Fluellen is the last man standing in the interior defensive line as the Seminoles entered their final practice before facing Clemson on Saturday.
With FSU trying various linemen at the recently depleted defensive tackle position, Fluellen, the only healthy tackle with starting experience, thinks the week of changes has been productive.
"There has not been a noticeable dropoff. Of course, we can't replace (starting defensive tackle) Paul (Griffin) in only a week," said Fluellen, who tallied 26 tackles in 12 starts last season. "But Alex Boston coming over - he's big and strong enough to play d-tackle. He's doing a good job so far."
Boston, who has had an ankle injury throughout the fall, has not played defensive tackle since his freshman year of high school.
Defensive tackle Letroy Guion sprained his ankle in FSU's victory against Troy, but said it is feeling about 70 percent. He is questionable and will be a game-time decision.
USF: Watson to play
TAMPA - Coach Jim Leavitt said left tackle Thed Watson will play but not start against UCF, even though he missed two practices this week and the 21-20 win against Florida International on Saturday.
"He looked good," Leavitt said.
Watson is listed as the starting left tackle on this week's depth chart, but junior Jared Carnes started the first two games.
Just another game: Leavitt won't admit the game against the Golden Knights is a rivalry, but he said his players "haven't needed (any extra motivation). They're ready to get out there after a long week."
Bull bits: This week's captains are linebackers Stephen Nicholas and Pat St. Louis, quarterback Pat Julmiste and receiver S.J. Green ... UCF assistant athletic director David Chambers told the Orlando Sentinel he expects a crowd of 42,000-45,000 based on current sales. Last season's game against UCF brought an announced 45,139 to Raymond James Stadium.
UF: Vols DT a concern
GAINESVILLE - Tennessee defensive tackle Justin Harrell has a left biceps tear, yet will start and be a captain in his final game as a Vol. While Harrell, whose season will end with surgery next week, likely will pump up the Vols, Florida coach Urban Meyer is more concerned about his offensive line blocking the 6-foot-4, 300-pound senior.
"I don't worry about the emotional lift," Meyer said. "I worry that he's a great football player. He's a guy that's hard to block."
ETC: Freshman quarterback Tim Tebow has earned the right to play this weekend after two good weeks of practice in a row, Meyer said, and may even see action in the first half.
