Shantavia Jackson signed her three sons up for football to keep them out of trouble. As a single mother who works the night shift at a Home Depot warehouse 50 minutes away from her house, Jackson relies on the sport to shield the boys from gang activity in her rural Georgia county. They began in a local league five years ago when they were still little, their helmets like bobbleheads on their shoulders. Now 11, 12, and 14, they play in games across the region. Jackson says she passed up a daytime shift at Home Depot so that she can drive them to games and cheer them on.
Over time, the boys coaches have become mentors, making sure their athletes get good grades and stay off the streets. They take the boys on field trips to the beach and to Busch Gardens. Jacksons eldest son, Marqwayvian McCoyor Qway, as she calls himhas particularly thrived. Jackson says Qway has been diagnosed with schizoaffective bipolar disorder, which sometimes manifests in bursts of anger and an inability to focus at school. Now his teammates help him when he gets stuck in his studies and look up to him for his prowess on the field. Theyve nicknamed him Live Wire because he can hit so hard.

Usually, the organizers would pit gladiators of similar status and experiences together during these fights. But as fate would have it, Marcus Attilius was facing Hilarus an imperial gladiator who had already fought fourteen fights and won twelve of them. Right when everyone was convinced Marcus did not stand a chance, this newcomer scored a thumping win against the veteran staging an upset that earned him much admiration. Then rose, the legend of Marcus Attilius, who went on to defeat the likes of Raecius Felix another fighter who had won twelve fights in a row.

It does not matter what race you are. If your parents (or single mother) gives you a name like Marqwayvian you are going to have a hard life.
Wow. Pile CTE on top of schizoaffective disorder.
That should work just great.
” schizoaffective bipolar disorder”
I think that means qway-qway will be in prison before any nfl career gets started.
Sooooo, I must watch and subsidize football or I am stunting young black males? The new welfare.
Too bad for white kids.
I got to know and befriend quite a few black kids because I played football. The only color that mattered was the uniforms.
White kids are going to be absolute p^ssies and black kids will become men.
...probably before trade school...
Major League Baseball is spending ten of millions of dollars trying to get minority youth to play baseball. They have to be willing.
