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.

Top 10 Bay Area Teams
John C. Cotey's Top 10 Ranking the bay area's football teams, with previous ranking in parentheses.
By JOHN C. COTEY
Published October 7, 2007
1. (1) Armwood (6-0)
Friday: beat No. 32 Tampa Bay Tech 26-0.
This week: at Plant City.
The Hawks, who picked up their first shutout of the season against the Titans, are 3-0 this season when they score 26 points. Ironically, they also are 3-0 when they don't score 26 points. Actually, that's not ironic at all, is it?
2. (2) Largo (5-0)
Friday: beat Pinellas Park 48-0.
This week: vs. Lakewood.
You can add Brynn Harvey to the list of players who have rushed for 300 yards in a game this season. You can add Pinellas Park to the list of teams that wishes Brynn Harvey would graduate already.
3. (3) Hillsborough (5-0)
Saturday: beat Freedom 37-0.
This week: vs. Plant.
Is it too early to start hyping next week's game against Plant? You know, to call it the second-biggest game of the season? To tout that nasty Terriers defense and the Panthers' wicked air attack? To suggest fans set up tents at Camp Garcia to get good tickets? Because I'm ready!
4. (4) Plant (4-1)
Saturday: Beat Blake 64-7.
This week: at Hillsborough.
In an informal poll of Plant and Blake players, the vote was 106-0 that Friday's game just be declared over, since Plant led 51-0 at the half and the Yellow Jackets had no chance, or interest really, in trying to come back from an impossible deficit. In an informal poll of silly adults who make silly decisions, it was voted unanimously that the game be completed at 9 a.m. Saturday morning.
5. (5) Northeast (5-0)
Friday: Beat No. 7 Boca Ciega 16-13.
Next week: vs. East Lake.
Tim Tisdale proved the Vikings are not a one-man team. They are a two-man team.
6. (6) Ridgewood (5-0)
Friday: beat River Ridge 49-14.
This week: vs. Mitchell.
That's four straight games of more than 40 points for the Rams' potent offense, and seven straight victories, longest in Tampa Bay.
7. (8) Chamberlain (4-2)
Friday: beat No. 29 Sickles 35-0.
This week: at Jefferson.
Three straight shutouts. Heck, the last time someone scored on the Chiefs, a Bush was in office, a Clinton was running for office and we were in a war in Iraq.
8. (9) Dunedin (4-2)
Friday: Beat No. 36 Clearwater 53-0.
This week: vs. Tarpon Springs.
The Dunedin defensive backs are so nasty, you can't even pass bread around the table when they're sitting there.
9. (7) Boca Ciega (4-1)
Friday: lost 16-13 to No. 5 Northeast.
This week: vs. Countryside.
Pirates offense still stalled. Or in this case, flooded.
10. (11) Gaither (4-2)
Friday: beat No. 43 Mitchell 30-14.
This week: vs. Alonso.
After an 0-2 start, Cowboys are rolling, play three of final four games at home, final two district games at home and probably a playoff game at home. If you bought low on Gaither, congrats.
