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.
A team-by-team look at Hillsborough County spring football:
Coach: Rick Shears (third season, 16-14)
2006 record: 5-5
District opponents: Bishop McLaughlin, Bradenton Prep, Calvary Christian, Keswick Christian, Sarasota Out-of-Door, Tampa Baptist
Jamboree date/opponent: May 17 at Shorecrest
Who's gone: DT David Bain, OL Trevor Moore, LB Nick Mercado
Who's back: RB/DB Will Bakos, RB/DB Taylor Cabral, DB Josh Lockwood, LB Erik Shears
What's new: The Lancers, under first-year defensive coordinator Dale Gore, have switched things up. In the past, Cambridge used a five-man defensive front. Now it is playing with four. The change was made so the Lancers can play more zone, something coaches hope will greatly improve the team's pass defense. The squad's top defensive player is Erik Shears, the coach's son. A four-year starter, he is a 5-foot-11, 230-pound middle linebacker who runs well and hits hard. The top junior-to-be might be quarterback Etienne Turner, a 6-1, 180-pound run-pass threat who played wide receiver in 2006. Now in its fifth season, the Cambridge program appears to be heading in the right direction. The Lancers have 15 rising seniors, all of whom are four-year players. By comparison, the squad had five seniors last season and four the year before. Another positive sign: Of the school's 182 students, 45 signed up to play football this spring.
Audibles: "Our motto this year is, 'Glorify God by playing in Week 12.' And I think that's very realistic." - Rick Shears
