Carl is on page 80 of 318 of American Prison: History of the development of penitentiaries--one motive was to have a way to keep getting cheap labor for plantations, the state, the roads . . .

Carl Deuker, Gym Candy

“There was no anger in his voice, no disappointment even. It was as if he'd given up on me. He pulled his keys out of his pocket. "I should be going now. Merry Christmas, Nick”
Carl Deuker, Night Hoops

“Theres something incredible about putting a helmet on just before a game; its a feeling only a football player knows. Your vision narrows, and the whole world shrinks. You cant hear much of what goes on outside you, but you can hear yourself breathe and you can feel yourself sweat.”
