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.
PINELLAS PARK - Pinellas Park freshman guard Cory Carden admits he rarely played one-on-one with his older brother, Cam, growing up.
"It would always lead to an argument," Cory said with a grin. "I think I beat him once - maybe when I was 8."
Cory Carden, a 5-foot-7, 137-pounder, played like big brother Monday night in the Patriots' 58-47 win over Dixie Hollins.
In his first varsity start, Carden racked up 11 points, five assists, two steals and one charge.
"He played like a senior," quipped Cam, a junior guard. "Like he's been there before."
Like Cory, the Patriots (1-0) didn't do anything fancy offensively. Carden scored on a 3-pointer to open the game, then a back-door cut.
But two pretty passes, which helped give Pinellas Park an early nine-point lead, stole the show.
On one, he pump-faked a 3-pointer before whipping a pass underneath to Le'Andris Whiting for a score.
Then, to open the second quarter, Carden cut to the hoop, catching a pass from Cam (13 points) before, in one motion, dropping a pass to Whiting for a layup.
Dixie Hollins' streaky shooting, however, kept it in the game. Guard Thomas Brown scored a game-high 17, and Devonta Davis hit a 3 with 2:23 to go to cut the Patriots' lead to 51-45. The Rebels got no closer as junior forward Jesse Woods (14 points) helped keep the athletic Rebels (0-1) off the boards.
"We got beat," Dixie Hollins coach Louis Rowe. "They executed very well. They ran what they wanted to run."
