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.

GULFPORT - As Boca Ciega senior guard Lamorya Daniels soared for a layup Friday night, he forgot about high-flying Anthony Dorsey.
Dorsey, a 6-foot-3 Lakewood senior, came out of nowhere to block Daniels' third-quarter shot into the stands.
The block, part of a 13-0 Lakewood run, seemed fitting as it was Dorsey and the Spartans' defense that propelled them to a 54-45 win over Boca Ciega.
The sold-out showdown (1,200 fans) between two of the county's top teams (both are 6-1 in district) quickly turned into a foul fest; there were more fouls (45) than field goals (32).
Lakewood (14-2, 6-1) pulled away thanks to its playmaking guards, Dorsey (21 points) and Nixon (16), as well as some stingy defense.
The typically sharp-shooting Pirates were held without a 3-pointer and went 17-for-34 from the free throw line. Boca Ciega's star guard trio -- Daniels, Steve Andrews (fouled out) and Nehemiah Simpkins (10 points) - combined for just 20 points.
"We've got big guards, but they're 6-4, 6-5, and they challenged all our shots," Daniels said. "They're tall, they're long, they're athletic. It was tough."
Lakewood and Boca Ciega (12-4), each atop Class 5A, District 11 with one loss, meet again Jan. 26 at Lakewood.
