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.
TAMPA - Only three nights after winning a fight for their postseason lives, Jesuit and Newsome must fight a little more in the autumnal version of March Madness.
By winning Friday (Newsome over Middleton, Jesuit over Robinson), the Wolves and Tigers host Monday night's district tiebreakers in 4A-11 and 3A-11, respectively. Call them one-quarter crapshoots, where anything is possible.
"I don't have a yay or nay opinion about it," Wolves coach Ken Hiscock said. "I mean, that's the way it is, and why argue with that?"
Newsome's 27-21 victory over Middleton left the Wolves (6-3), Hillsborough (6-4) and Freedom (6-4) with 3-1 district records.
The Wolves get a first-round bye and home-field advantage Monday, based on a slightly better overall winning percentage. Hillsborough plays Freedom in the opening quarter, with the loser facing Newsome for the district title.
If Newsome loses, it plays the Hillsborough-Freedom loser for the district's runnerup (and second playoff) spot. If teams are tied after a quarter, a Kansas tiebreaker ensues, where teams alternate possessions from the opponent's 10-yard line until a winner emerges.
In the 3A-11 tie-breaker, only the runnerup spot will be decided. Sarasota Booker clinched the district title with a 48-25 win Friday over Palmetto, but Jesuit's 34-21 win over Robinson left Palmetto, Jesuit and the Knights tied with 1-2 district records.
Jesuit (5-4) gets the tiebreaker bye based on its head-to-head win against the Knights (5-4). Robinson faces Palmetto (4-5) in the opening quarter; the winner faces Jesuit for a playoff berth.
"We're extremely excited about it," said Tigers coach Joe Ross. "At least we have more of a chance Monday than we thought we had a couple of weeks ago."
